A Child Dies

He was a mere kid
consumed by curiosity
which brought him one morning
to a burning scene of a shop
the fire raged before his eyes
is was angry
eating up every article
then came an alarm
because a monster was know to stalk the streets
the child fled
he just ran and ran
away from the fire
but his mind was engrossed by the fascination
his eyes fixed on the burning scene
the child ran and ran
until he fell smack
into the hands of a towering giant
he was grabbed
he was hurled to the ground
like grain
he was pounded and pounded
with a gun-butt

we buried the mess
another day

may his soul rest in peace
