  no burial for me
when life slips from my shell
leave me naked in the woods
my final gift, be well

organic putrification
giving back to the earth
nurtients seeping out
sucked up by tree roots

yellow bile, ichors flow
decomposition of flesh
liquifying muscle
the symphony of death

a banquet for flies
helping propagate their species
a feast for the beasts
as my corpse swells with gasses

let soil drink of my juices
rodents bellies be full
the grass now grows stronger
where once laid a fool
