Another Day in Paradise

There he was in the graveyard; the grave digger...
I wondered who will dig his grave...

hmmm .. i've thought about grave diggers before .. what kinda life they live and if they actually feel sorry for people they dig graves for .. I doubt it .. i think it's just another job .. today even relatives don't feel sorry for the one 6 feet under.

hmm @ old masters in Russia and Ireland .. thanks for letting us know man, I didn't know about this. I will research Winsor Macay .. will try to find some of his works ..

thanks for the insight ..

Nice photo Gulzar. That look on his face makes it look like he's about to come charging after you. But yeah, I would think he just takes it as his job. Not really his fault that the person is dead...or is it!

thanks for the lovely poetry .. all true!
