"Death Certificate" as written by and M. Amott J. Walker....
A grim myriad, a grey kaleidoscope, sterile, contrasting
Born and die, institutionalised, a bleak epitaph, an apalogue so sad

Cross indexed, cross dissected
Cross referenced, contabescence
Cross indexed, cross bisected
Cross referenced, certificate of death/certified dead

Machine coded, reduced to hard memory, in a data base
Digitalised, statistical obituary, your only legacy, your final resting place

[1st lead - Steer]
[2nd lead - Amott]

    General CommentThis is more difficult to understand than all the others on Heartwork. Maybe about how poor people are born, are indoctrinated with the ideas of the rich, have boring lives and then die. The only meaningful mark they leave on society is to be a statistic.
