In memory of
Anna Hopewell

Here lies the body of our
Anna
Done to death by a banana
It wasn't the fruit that
laid her low
But the skin of the thing
that made her go.

Here lies the body of

Who was always uneasy,
and not over pious;
She lived to the age of

And gave that to the worms
she refuesd to the men.
