Dying Inside

Dying Inside

He discovered the corpse and died inside

A lawman protects but not this time 

Cold stench splits his sleep 

Clogs his mind

Comes close to ending him  


When the new plague came he smiled

Let it rip, he said

Cull the herd

I ask why

His smile sharpens


He’s sure this virus is God’s will 

Will rid the world of useless old

Clear cut the ill


He’s fine with millions dead 

But could not live with one

How many more like him?
