The chafe and burn of hemp ropes

 On your wrists, ankles and around your neck

*    *    *    *    *    *    *    *

Just to remind you how little choice you have As you struggle to survive,

But pray for death...

 

WITNESS...

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yes, you were there...

 

 

 

The chafe and burn of hemp ropes

 

 

 

On your wrists, ankles and around your neck

 

 

 

As you were led, powerless, to your fate...

 

 

 

The stinking breath of the drunken guard

 

 

 

Who saved your life for his own pleasure

 

 

 

The metallic taste of a gun barrel jammed into your mouth,

 

 

 

The barrel leaving an open wound in your palate

 

 

 

And the trigger guard bruising your soft lips

 

 

 

Just to remind you how little choice you have

 

 

 

As you struggle to survive,

 

 

 

But pray for death...
