Cemetery Lament

Posted: Thursday, May 07, 2009

Bury me not by runway three

Where the brown bear walks over me

Where the moose do roam and planes you see

O' bury me not by runway three

It makes no difference, so I've been told

Where the body lies, when it grows cold

But grant, I pray, one wish to me

O' bury me not by runway three

Soldotna's airport is not for me

West Redoubt is the place to be

So, honor this my dying plea

Bury me not by runway three

Author's note: Some lines were borrowed from "Don't Bury Me on the Lone Prairie."
