FREE CEE murmerings of murder


Helga’s was a house with no humor
And a room with a well known rumor
The house was built on a gush of guilt
And the room within hid a bloody quilt

People spoke of her house in a hush
And a rumor that made young girls blush
Hhelga's friend Hal had hands hardened by steel
Hardened hands that made horror real

Hal’s pals tried to reason with him
Including and most importantly, Tim
Tim told Hal to leave Hal’s gal alone
But Hal beat Helga body and bone

That house became hurtful and the rumor real
Yet no one knew how that made Helga feel
Trips to the doctor with black and blue bruises
But if she remained silent only she loses

Hal deserved to lose in a very big way
And then came that most horrible day
It was upon that quilt that Helga lay
When Hal killed Helga in the month of May

That house has been leveled by a wrecking ball
Erasing the day when death came to call
An empty lot is the reminder of a rumor
Whispers that remind others of a house with no humor

How do we process a young girl crying?
How do we accept a young girl dieing?
Well now Hal does those things extremely well
From the inside of Hal’s very small cell
