Exonerated Executioner

The gallows grow crowded,

If we string up all the fools,

Surely, better to let them fall,

In love, that they may hang

Themselves and, if push comes,

To shove, we can appease our

Horror hungry hearts by,

Murdering the idiots, those,

Unable to grasp the concept,

Of lying,

Fervid virginity, the masquerade

Of dying.
