    I hear him digging in the graveyard behind my house
    The digger's working again beneath the foggy twilight
    That rusty shovel breaking into wet soil
    His exhausted grunts and wheezes from the strain
    It's been a busy year for him, the carrion are piled high
    The crows have bloated stomachs from their feasting
    And that smell is getting harder to ignore
    Frank said that one of the buzzards was staring at him
    Beady soulless eyes unblinking, hungry
    The other day I saw a flock of those bastards
    Gnawing on the corpse of someone's poor dog
    I wonder if anyone's cleaned up the bones yet
    Not that it matters, no one walks the streets anymore
    They stay inside, the lock tight on their door
    In hopes that death will skip their house
    If only it were that easy
    The leaves are falling off of the trees
    Branches that look like bony hands reaching for my windows
    Twisted, gnarled fingers pointing in at me
    Each gust of wind knocks the twigs against my door
    Scraping and clawing desperately like some animal frightened by the dark
    I grip my bottle tight, drinking to quiet the noise
    In my whiskey fever I toss and turn, unable to sleep
    Haunted by dreams of hounds and strangers with shattered faces
    The reaper ain't coming yet, I tell myself
    The reaper ain't coming yet.
