The guy

No gravestone… just a marker

An unknown guy died 

It wasn’t in the papers 

Because he was no one.
His life was short

Non descript, average

A man of the road

A man without kin
The coroner’s assistant

Uncovered a life

That posed no threat

And had no celebrity
He died on Monday

Buried &marked

The same week

No one noticed

No one mourned
