Disputes in terms of burial often may arise
when a family member meets with their demise.
Some crave a tasteful marble slab engraved with just a name,
while others wax panegyric, professing lives of fame.
The freedom to adorn the grave of one who’s gone above
with flowers and with carvings of angel, lamb or dove,
is stretched as far as human taste allows one to express.
and as much as families are willing to confess.
Some histories are written clear. Others we have to guess.
In death as in their lives, showing their natures, more or less.
