The Murder of Their Friend (poem)

Updated on March 16, 2016

Their friend was gone where was it that he went

All thoughts now turned to some unknown demise

At least that’s how it was within the eyes

Of those with whom such happy times were spent


What other whimsy might a fool surmise

Explains away the absence of a gent

A fellow who had nothing to repent

And even less about him to revise


The word soon spread to everyone around

A mystery the world could not dismiss


Each day would call another heart to pound

What unseen fiend was causing all of this


Twas underneath a tree that he was found

Their friend was gone there taken by a kiss

Music only
