The debt he now carried

So drastically varied

That now he is buried on hill

I love this. Simple, and yet provocative with so much meaning.

So true, to worry about tomorrow when one barely knows/appreciates today.

So, I have just one question. How much debt the poor guy himself create if the debt was so drastically reduced upon his rather unfortunate demise?

Buried, you say, Martin?

That he was already dead.
