that little cemetary up on the hill
Look at that little cemetery up on the hill,
I hear it gives all the local kids a chill.
there are not so many ghosts up in that little bit,
as now seem to rest in the town below it.

Let's go visit that little cemetery up on the hill,
Oh joy, oh boy! wouldn't that just be a thrill.
The granite is crumbling and weeds make the path give way,
the names erode and the flowers are subject to decay.

they have forgotten that little cemetery up on the hill,
it seems as if no one has paid the maintenance bill.
Let nature take back what men have stolen,
then maybe this area would seem less sullen.

Hey, Makes me think a bit of one of Robert Frost's poems. But, "cometary?" Is that deliberate or a typo? Good work. Elton
