Murder She Wrote

By RaheemaFKM

Pity the goose who hung the noose, and did not check that it was loose
Enough to snap her pretty head, right clean off and leave her dead
Pity the fool who did not see, the menace lurking patiently
 Behind the old sweet willow tree, to cut her open greedily
Pity the corpse all cold and grim, torn away from every limb
Missing bits and fleshy parts, stacked on rolling body carts
Pity the bold and daring one, remembering all that she has done
To incur the wrath of one, hacking till the deed is done
Pity the day I pull you near, confirming every secret fear
You wrap for me with every tear, like a present I hold dear
Pity when I lose my mind, and turn upon your filthy kind
Pity that they will never find, the skewered heart I’ll leave behind
