Treasure Island

Skylar Kendall

(12-18-1992 / San Pedro, California)

The Noose


The tolling of the bell
Ringing, Ringing
The sound so loud, so defining
The tolling of the bell

The rope
Set in place
Slowly swinging
The rope

The victim
Pale, waiting for death
Walks slowly, sways carefully
The victim

The time
Here now
Set now
The time

The rope tight around the neck
Waiting to dropp
Ready to break
The rope

Death stares into his eyes
Slowly begins to take his soul
The murder awaits
Drop, Drop, Drop

Dropped

poet Geoffrey Chaucer

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
