can you feel the ice
(“no jury? no witnesses?”)
slipping down your spine?
(“what kind of justice is this?”)
does it make you shiver?
(this is not a trial,)
you’re pushed forward
(this is merely a sentencing.)
tripping, slipping over your eloquent words
(how do you wish to have your sentence carried out?)
where is your vocabulary now?
where is your bible? where is your god?
(“if you think we’re going to walk out on that ice willingly-”)
but i forgot, there is no god
(“you got another thing coming.”)
here, only heroes, and we all know
(so it’s death then?)
that heroes don’t
(“looks that way.”)
