These wicked vets., refused to allow your owners know about the nature of your sickness

These vets became useful fools

Too late to revive you

For the cold fingers already held you by the throat

For the sickness has eaten you deep

Deep beyond measures

The last pin entered your skin

Its content deliberating life or death

The last pin entered into your skin and its content sent you packing

Watched the world crumble

For our beautiful Desdemona breath her last

Breath her last; at the same time tears dropped

Out of our last born’s eyes.
