We are all equal in the ground.
No one has power over another
when we lie side by side
under the sod.
There is an instant armistice.
A sudden democracy
falls over any graveyard
where we each count just as one,
and all our differences

are immediately settled.
It no longer matters
whose tree fell on whose fence.
We have come to an accord.
Can we try for this peace in life
instead of waiting till we must die?
