Ode to Thomas the Killer

pre-judged and pre-empted

He goes mad, a bad;

egg or so people think,

his mind is made up,

and outwards he goes for revenge.

He has no friends for reputation precedes truth,

and fear kills off opportunity.

He tried too hard to make acquaintance – out doing convention,

causes more fear.

In his nighttime scribbles we see the fear,

the longing for vengeance;

‘Tuer Des Gens’ – ‘Kill the people’

Outside the window are ‘the people’

the blight of a poisoned life.
