How gravely patient is the grave

by L. Stewart Marsden

How gravely patient is the grave.
With nought but time it bides and waits
and none are saved its ultimate doom,
its yawing jaws shall be sated.
None can hesitate its gloom —
or e’en be late to stand afore that portal gate —
the passage to beyond
upon which all do speculate.

Think you not so?
So you think some miracle
will bypass you your deep dug grave?
That you will cheat its final due?
An ex machina will save you?
Do you so think?
