The bones of Richard III
Curious things bones;
signifying substance and frailty
resolve and vulnerability
life and death
If there is anything reverent about life
it lies in the sad indifference of
stripped of individuality
for under our weak decaying flesh
is that which in the end we shall all become,
appearing much the same as any other,
reminding us of what little we are
What is it all for?
All the effort and strife
all the struggles of life
only to come to this?
Whether high or low
Prince or Pope
mighty warrior or village harlot;
a treat for dogs.
