no need to explain

so foolish words and actions will run deep
enough to make a stolid watcher cry
in honest pain at the uncaring sky
while to their lairs the hungry roaches creep
leaving behind mere messes in a heap
to irritate the nose and scar the eye
of any dumb enough to pass right by
this haunts the mind even when fast asleep
no one who knows the facts dares to insist
that you remain unmoved by the desire
expressed within the heart before each death
as the proud victim falls beneath the fist
to seem more worthy of the butcher's hire
than those that simply feared to lose their breath
