Worm Dirt

Lee Hays & Pete Seeger:

If I should die before I wake,
all my bones and sinew take
put me on the compost pile
to decompose me for a while
worms, water, sun will have their way
returning me to common clay
all that I am will feed the trees
and little fishes in the seas
when radishes and corn you munch
you may be having me for lunch
and then excrete me with a grin
chortling there goes Lee again.
