Dead Men

four dead men hanging on the wall
sooner or later one will fall
upon the ground with a bloody thud
there to feed the ground with all of their blood

Three dead men hanging on the wall
sooner or later one will fall
against the wall with a wet slide
there for the pain, there for the ride

two dead men hanging on the wall
sooner or later one will fall
leaving the other in a hanging grave
to die alone unafraid

One single man hanging on the wall
he looks down at those that fall
turns to his left, then to his right
no one is watching, thrusts off the pike
wiping the blood from his dampened shirt
dripping to the ground, staining the dirt
looks about once more to make sure he’s right
then with a turn of his foot, disappears into the night
