Tomb Of Dead Poets

        Tomb Of The Dead Poets
Tomb of the dead poet has  
been covered in deep silence
His ancient voice breaths  with 
an immortal breath.
It's written by the ink of 
innocence 

This was his epitaph:

Here lies the   Madman
Who lived mad and was madly
Mad with an unquenchable dark 
passion
His words were dipped in 
Fire.....

The poetry of the world is dead!
Awake your mighty speech of 
rising!
Let all the twisted words amend 
to you eternal phrasing.

By Ernest Badounts
 To all the mighty ancient poets
In their honor.
