March 19th, 2009 - "Thoughts from the Electric Chair"

"Thoughts from the Electric Chair"

Electricity pulsed painlessly through the executed,
Charring skin flaking off his arms effortlessly.
Maggots took no time, crawling upon the man,
Nesting behind bloodied eyes, lovingly.
Colonies springing out, crawling through the crags,
Hollowed out passages stocked completely,
Nutritiously sustaining the ignorant larva.
Generations growing, expanding rapidly,
Commandeering the legs, arms, the fingers.
Tissues was devoured, Veins dried out eventually,
Marrow was forgotten and barren bones rotted,
Stranding the parasites in the velvet coffin helplessly,
Naively waiting without the merciful electricity.
