MEAL OF DEATH

Poisoned apple dangling 
before mine eyes
Are you the royal feast 
before one dies?
Is there a hangman gladly 
lurking by
And crowds to bid  another 
fool goodbye?
Can I just take a little baby 
bite
To quench this thirst about 
to douse my light?
Do you expect in hunger I 
despise
This meal of death 
disguised as paradise?
Should I postpone the day 
my loved ones cry
And live in woe or do I say 
goodbye?
