Hands Of The Gratefull Gravedigger - Poem by travis jones

Weary indeed are hands such as these from the prick of piney wood slivers
ley split earthy seems to place inert things
that these hands do daily deliver
They need not of rest and instead try their best
to hold on to remnants of vigor
Thankful for life with its toil and strife
Are the hands of the grateful gravedigger
