Epitaph: The Crash

St. Paul’s Lutheran School
Pennington County, South Dakota

Falling devotedly, crying so solemnly,
He was lively and now he’s nothing.
Crows peck at the bird seed across from me,
Then the tables turn, making me jump
I was frightened when I hit that big thump.
Smashing through the windows, crashing into the streets,
Oh yes, the car crash was frightening.
