And so it all was

Lying there dead at his feet

The madness of truth

They could have been best of friends

But something got in the way

Mhatter, a Tanka with much sadness and regret, I can't help but wonder at how they got to this point. Beautifully done. I think it's time I had another go.

Thanks for the motivation.
