Stretched on a frame in the bathhouse
Ankles and wrists lashed hard

As the ship crossed the horizon
To dropp off the world as he knew it
His shovel beard, his barrel chest

Shot with an arrow, bludgeoned to death
Had 61 tattoos, like a human tapestry

Though others may call me pathetic
I'll spend what it costs
To have prosthetic busts

Three blasts in quick succession in Colombo
Three hundred murdered, wiped away at once
500 injured, families blown apart

They stun the mind and glut the eyes
