So you've been wanting to bury that skeleton
which hangs around your neck like a hangman's scarf?
Well, I am not afraid to get my hands dirty
but I am terrified that people will perceive
me to be the dirt under your nails.
By all means, let me dig deep for you
and bury that bag of bones which drags you down
but please do not let us fall into our own grave
and do not let my name be smudged with soil.
