"Last Moments of Life"

The belt is hoisted

And robustly strikes the sweating

Flesh of the old man.


His cries of terror

Are followed by a plea for

Mercy as his skin



Rips like dry paper.

His eyes twitch with blood and sweat

Slowly trickling.


The man looks into

The dreaded, blood shot eyes of

The crazed attacker.


Striking out his last

Breath of air.  The whip soars in

The man hurriedly.
