Silence is the Killer


Silence is the killer,

the murderer most formidable,

abducting peace from Solution’s stronghold-

mellowing a path toward never-ending Havoc,

who takes rightful partnership alongside his accomplice.

Eyes piercing, mouth salivating:

tension spiking, toxic as alcohol;

silence is a gradual bounty hunter,

the samurai of all ever soundless-

a crunch of paper: the Dinosaur demanding more of him,

dirt-scuffing boots summoning a steadfast cease.

Playing his game-a careful study!

One mistake: the Cackling Cantor.
