Scorpion 28
 
 
Posit a cessation to unpleasantness.
 
The will to press a witch to death, to lease and loan
 
to fortune, to grease a killer to guiltlessness,
 
to please all modern rustlers:  this is the way the herd
 
ends, not with a ring but a center.
 
Tender resignation, afraid to think what you have done.
