The Lynch Mob

photo by hungrybison

The crescendo of inhumanity,

the rope’s in the tree.

Blood begets blood,

sin begets sin.

Reason succumbs to hate,

vengeance.

Gathered together are the

pitiful bastards, gathered to

watch a condemned man swing.

Gathered are the blackened souls,

“animals”.

A frightened man, must die.

Old Testament justice,

the way of the lynch mob.
