The Last Graverobber

Like a thief at midnight he will come soon
to lift the contents of grave and tomb;
So Watch.. watch as if by full moon's light
though when he comes he'll have torch bright
as lightning - you've seen the flash
of blue light upon midnight walls within darkened room
as downpour cleanses earth,
and thunder rolls across heaven's girth.

And in the blackness his torch will blaze
upon the headstone's graven lines:
A name or names;
appropriate words in few lines;
perhaps a verse.. a poet's jewelled love set in rhyme;
or scripture from the Master Poet ...
