Killer Of The Killer


The killer that he killed
Was not himself
But within himself
It was not

the word that he
intended to speak
that he spoke

Carried a burden
mostly it carried him
and himself-

was not able
to carry it without-
himself crying
and his tears

the witch burned
And the fire has
spread and he
himself cannot
fight the fire-
