“Who would leave a crib here?” asked one to the other.
“What is that racket! Can’t we sleep in peace at least now?!” said a third.
“It’s a baby,” informed the first.
“What the! What inhuman person would leave a baby here!” said the third.
“Let’s put her to sleep now. Hopefully, one of us might have a visitor tomorrow morning, who’d take her to an orphanage,” said the second.
“Oh gosh! I thought my babysitting days were over!” the third exclaimed.
Nevertheless, the spirits in the cemetery sung a lullaby for the baby, and put her to sleep.

    Ironical that the living have less of a heart than the departed.

    Well written.

    Well, we can't judge them. It's mean, but sometimes there's a reason. But yeah, abandoning one in a graveyard is just cruel..!

    Creepy. Reminded me of Gaiman's The Graveyard Book…!

    For some humans, it's easy to be selfish and abandon a child just to pursue their own lives.

    I guess by the time you are dead, you would've learned all there is to learn about life. So you become quite caring and forgiving 🙂
