The Modesty of Tombs 🏝

Who can fathom the mystery of the desert

Veiled in wind-driven sand

With a certain modestly of Tombs.

For death is a modest place,

Both for the pharaohs who lived spectacular lives,

And for the lowly peasants buried

Without ceremony under the sand.

For all rot and are deeply silent

In eternal repose.

Death is the greatest equalizer of man.

This is God’s plan.
