How happy are unassuming sentences!
Do sentences make you shiver?
I saw the the tragic modification of my generation destroyed,
How I mourned the decease.
Never forget the tragical and sad decease.
I cannot help but stop and look at the wooly disappearance.
Down, down, down into the darkness of the disappearance,
Gently it goes - the confused, the muzzy, the muddled.
Fatality is implacable fate.
implacable fate is fatality.
Down, down, down into the darkness of the fatality,
Gently it goes - the cockamamy, the sappy, the clownish.
I cannot help but stop and look at the scorching cremation.
Does the cremation make you shiver?
All that is unpeaceful is not end,
end, by all account is peaceful.
Down, down, down into the darkness of the end,
Gently it goes - the irenic, the halcyon, the undisturbed.
