A Dumb, Old Joke

Who’s buried in Grant’s tomb? That’s a dumb, old joke.
Of course, the answer is President Ulysses S. Grant.
But in that tomb couldn’t there be other folk?
We’re told it’s Mrs. Grant who was an admirer but not a sycophant.
Are we sure they are really in that tomb or is it just a cenotaph
where a memorial is built but bodies abide elsewhere?
Maybe it’s really Taft’s tomb with an erroneous epitaph.
I guess we’ll have to take it that the Grants really are there.
Besides, it’s just a dumb, old joke and does anyone really care?
