About Him.... - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

he never danced
even when he was younger then
though he wanted to
but all his feet are bound

he cannot speak fully well
and demonstrate his points through his arms
and hands
because all of him is

his neck has a rope that if he objects
shall be tightened

do not think that he has bad manners
when he screams upon hearing the sounds of iron
chains dragging a body
even in a dream

do not speak of ropes to him
he will run away

you were not there when he died
when the final prayers were said
