Riding Home Poster
It's Mid October and there you are, whistling past an old forgotten cemetery
around midnight, the moonlight is peeking through the old oak trees.
What is that in the distance you hear?
Look over yonder, to the sounds of a horse pulling a wagon. It's coming closer
and closer, down the old cobblestone path until you see the lone driver looming
into view, it's the King of Death in all his glory!!!
In his left hand he is carrying an hour glass as a reminder to live and
in the other, waving a scythe that any one can soon be cut down.
He is driving a gold-crested Victorian hearse pulled by a grand white horse.
Who is on board on this moonlight night?
Someone is riding home to the bosom of the earth.
'Dust thou art,
and unto dust
thou shalt return.
