Murphy's Law

Tombstones dot the solemn gray,
Wind wafts faint smells of decay.
Obscurity of darkness falls,
Spirits lament mournful calls.

Crickets creak a lonely tune,
Beneath a sky with elliptical moon.
Runes of stone crumbling rock,
ancestry long ago time has forgot.

The fog creeps like a sleepy slug,
Shrouding graves yet to be dug.
The skeletal trees like a greedy claw,
Staking a claim on Murphy's law.

If something can go wrong, it will. 
Repression in the night so still.
They say the only guarantees in life,
Is.....Death comes to end all strife.

    The last line "Death comes to end all strife" is very powerful. I so much like whoever think towards that direction. Thanks for sharing. Well Done Poetess Darkly.
