when
the people
stop
being afraid
of death
who
can scare
them
by holding up
skeletons?
if
they
actually
feared
death
and if
I caught
wrongdoers
and killed
them
would
anyone
dare
to rob
and kill?
as it is
we have
executioners
who
do
the job
they call
killing
chopping
wood
for the master
carpenter--
but
most
end up
splitting
their own

hands
