Dark Humour. New Poem. (Another one!)

You’ll be Needin’ the Gallows

You smiled a smile of trust
Blinked your eyes, as if by chance
Put your faith in ‘teenage kicks’
Laughed at rockers fading fast

But when you were asked whose
side you were on.
Take an oath of loyalty
For Goodness sake

Your hands and fingers twitched
And head shook all the more
Casting forth expletives
From behind closed doors

The gallows come like mercy
Closing such perfidious
Such a traitorous
Such an ignoble, bearing

Let us hope that in the future
Such thoughts are in the past
For now, you’ll need the gallows.

Get it over fast!
