being in jail won’t protect you

disturb a gravesite?
un-bury six-feet to a casket
when headstone earth is moved your doom un-earths
no judge can enforce a warlock-stay-away-order
unless you replace the corpse with your body
DON’T DO IT!          you’ll regret you were born

disturb a cremation?
remove ash from an urn or
your brown Labrador dog’s tail wags down an urn
DON’T DO IT!        turn-off the 3 am horror movie NOW!
