Ministers Demise - Poem by Robbie Squires

Flash! A bolt of lightning shoots down the sky
As the tedious onlookers watch in an ominous cry
The second man was killed at the train station
He murdered himself so they could not hang him
He must be back murmured the silent villagers
The minister stood atop the oak box platform
He cried out “Take me with you if you have returned! ”
As soon as the lightning disappeared so did the minister
He left without his eyes
For it was not the second mans murder at fault
It was his own suicide
