messenger

the death he saw, we do deplore, but only the messengers action, sign of the skull, and the face it bore, no sadness or satisfaction, i have been given the message too, Charley could be dead by monday, told old Crab, the word came true, heart attack, buried on sunday, a beer on the bar, we left for him, when we drank to him, that one day:( Don thank you Russell Sivvey "Within his Eye"

    I love these lines: "[...]the word came true,/heart attack, buried on sunday" ...conciseness at its best! If it's for Deborah's contest: a sure winner! Ruben.
