State Death

Rating: 5.0
From the tribes come the cries of grief
From the phlegm a stream of tears flows
In the dept of our hearts
In the vacuum created suddenly
untamed sorrow settles unopposed
and our hands are heavy and tied

A mighty oak has fallen
The leg that sought to carry the heavy load of the body
has ceased to remain active
The head of the people is no more

Death is not the formal truth what you see...when you research someones untimely death you find fishes and who knows if you find the pond reaching the river and then the ocean overseas in the frantic search of clues leading to the situation
