No Backbone


Fire in eyes,
Darkness in mind,
Concious unwise,
Intentions unkind,

Prompted to take,
Life in its wake,
Slaughtered his own,
Victim unknown,

Sorry, but late,
Inevitable fate,
Soon to succumb,
Victim undone,

Heart of stone,
No backbone,
Ruled by disdain,
Leaving the slain,

No second thought,
Why, why not?
Evil now roams,
For future unknowns.

Then blooms each thing, then maids dance in a ring,
Cold doth not sting, the pretty birds do sing:
