What Can It Matter?

He was a caretaker at the cemetery when he said,
“What can it matter, after I’m dead? Things will go on
And fester or prosper without much praise,
And none will raise a stone or marble monument for me
And none will raise a strong objection to who inherits
And any damn fool will be sufficient to write my epitaph.”
