This is for Poppy's June Prompt / Challenge which you can read and enter here

The words suggest an almost Poe-like darkness to me

The music is "The Words That Maketh Murder" by Polly Jean Harvey from "Let England Shake"

An Ending

The Verdict Is Clear

Murderer You Are

Your Victims Knew Fear

To Life "Au Revoir"


The Rope Will Take You

Toes Curl As You Fall

Airborne, You Drop Through

To Your Final Call


Nothing Left To See

Body Hangs, Life's Gone

Now Your Autopsy

Conclusion Foregone


Thankfully You're Gone

By Your Death Sentence

    Chilling end to a villain, it gave me the creepy crawlies. Thanks for reminding me of Poppy's prompt. You wonder why villains live so long to do more harm...where is the brimstone and fire when you need it.

    So deathly! Love it! Didn't Poppy give us some great words with prompt #6? Spotting one typo - "Thankfully Your Gone" should be you're. Cheers!
