likes jericho the walls are tumbling

down

down

down

the people cheer and the flames

grow higher

brighter

the pronouncement

(denouncement)

came like an axe crashing down on my head

BANG!

i’m dead

the metaphorical noose tied tight

the doors locked until daylight

a witch they called me, malicious and vile

for being a healer, for helping

for cheating death of its prey

forgive me for sinning

for letting them live another day

in dawn’s early light i stand, condemned

they point, jeer, laugh. how easily they forget

who it was they turned to in their hour of need.

The torch is lit.

If she lives, it is by the will of God.

(In this world, or the next).

ashes to ashes

REPENT YOUR SINS!
