Ever wrote a sequel
To a poem about 
The road of dead bodies
that you drove upon?

I dont Think So^^

O. Yeah im laughing
At such a radical idea
Thats not registerd yet
Into naiive-Like brain cells

Yeah! Am laughing^^

Wish I could just throw
My smile on that kid
That lay stone cold
Hand over ears even in death

Died of the noises...

Not laughing anymore?
Thought so
I just laid there staring
Right ontop of him

Dead silence...

I panicked
shoved my fist in his jaw
I felt his bone crunch
Now he doesnt have a screaming face


You think thats deep?
The guy right next to the kid
Was his dad
They kept him alive to watch
As his son burned
then became death
and soon a fossil
And when they chunk this place again
He will be dust

...His father
    He was right there

...To watch

Now read those last three lines
In Slow Mo
Read it and weep
Maybe the tears could drown
A father who is still there to watch
And spare him of the "Madness"

"Well,if its what you want to call it.
I mean you can call it unfair
But its just Mad-ness"

    My dear God! The intro was just the open door to this Horrific scenario. ..."His father/He was right there/ ...To watch" How can we (humans) be so cruel? I like your sarcasm. Deeeeep, thought-provoking, terrible images...I think you've found your voice, my friend. This poem goes to my favs, and you TOO, with my favs poets. Excellent! Great job. Ruben.
