Tales of men and women untold
Ideas that wanted to change the world
Wisdom of the old and learned men
Skills learnt with bruises and pain
Lie in the graveyard, still and cold
Never again to be heard or told
Countless tips and tricks buried
Slithering into oblivion with
the long dead and decaying breed
And it might have never occurred to you
for a thought like this is of eccentric kind
That the graveyard though a deserted land
is a place that’s literally rich and grand.
