I sat on my grave until I felt like I was mostly recovered from the effort of digging my way out of it. I brushed off the worst of the dirt as I stood, smoothed my skirt into place, and began trudging toward the cemetery gates . . .

When I hear that trumpet sound, I'm gonna get up out of the ground! Well there ain't no grave that can hold my body down!
Rise. From. The deaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad!
