A Rock ‘n Roll Stone




Do not disturb,

  disrupt or perturb

the stone as it rolls

  to its rest.


It’s been long coming down

  from a Rock ‘n Roll round –


To leave it alone would be best.


And the worm

  as it turns,

  tunnels and churns;

it does what it does and does best –


Disposes of roses, 

  and elsewise compostes;

but all of what falls is not lost.


For the worm when it turns,

  tunnels and churns,

it returns all it burns

  back to dust.


Like the stone

  it’s alone,

and each are at home –


It would be best

if we leave them at rest.
