Do You Hear Me?

You let the professionals set that gravestone.
They’ve got cranes and winches
and hard plastic hats.
They’ve placed thousands of stones
over thousands of graves, so don’t you go
and try to move that stone.
Don’t you break your back.
Don’t you risk your own soul.
Don’t you drop dead now
trying to carry that stone on your own.
