When my time comes Don’t Put me in the ground Because I’m not certain I can tolerate The cold Your branches Find their way At home Around my throat Bring me peace And quiet This serene descent Below Break these wicker bones Set the straw aflame Concession’s never worked When cruelty is our claim Send me far away Send me to a place Where I can stay Mumble simple words To chase this darkness Away I’m not asking for much Maybe A reprieve There’s violence in your words There’s tragedy In what we keep Break these wicker bones Set the straw aflame Concession’s never worked When cruelty is our claim Set these wicker bones Douse these hateful flames We’re left without recourse Because cruelty is our claim Because— Speak to me Tell me what you see I need empathy
