I See…..

I see that smile
I see the truth
I know what lies
behind the silver tooth
I know that no good will be had
pain
anguish
thoughts of death
I have been here
I will not fail
I will not let fall
any more children.
One
two
three
four
children missing
through the door
five
six
seven
eight
oh dear
you are too late.
Grimace
charge to door
late
to the dance floor
dagger in hand
vengeance
let us go darling
can you fox trot?
Watch
ebb
flow
crimson river
your screams
muffled
cautious
I wait
your life
flowing away.
They heralded me a champion.
They heralded me a saviour.
They herald me
when they never heard me
they…..
are as guilty as him.
