Please Mr. Gravedigger
Marion Cemetery, Marion, Ohio
This is a lovely tribute to someone who sounds like his co-workers had a great deal of affection for him. What a great epitaph.
Our first song, early Bowie (1967!) is also about a gravedigger, from the point of view of someone who has reason to fear him. It’s a wonderfully shocking song.
