Fear the Guillotine

Sharpened blades that gleam and sparkle, Like the stars above so bright that shine; He'll watch reflecting crooked smiles, As they watch his death before they dine. They laugh and smirk and hackle greatly, And tell crude jokes and drink red wine; He'll watch their thirsty eager eyes, As they watch his death before they dine. Animal-like due to greed and boredom, Indifferently, they'll take their time; He'll watch the sharped blade fall down, As they watch his death before they dine.

    It takes skill to bring poetry to outside the box subjects. Great job
