M U R D E R

By Christopher Sedgwick



Blood. She came for blood To cause a flood Some Crimson lake Something to seep beneath the mud To insert that knife Disguised in a hug The hole where it pours You are unable to plug Your life leaks out While she stands there smug How could she? You think She who gave you such love Watched you grow And brought you up But now you'll never know As your life slips from your cup She who was so divine You held on a shrine Had some reason to turn against you To commit this heinous crime Look to the sky For a desperate answer why No one else to look up to So, for now, it’s goodbye "Forgive me father, while I lie here and die” "And praise mother, for I finally see why”
