Pretty dress dazzle and swish

Long hair flow and twist

Clean hands fold and hold

Dark book worn and old

Quiet voice repeat and plead

Stale air silent and breathed

Curly lashes flutter and close

Black hearts cold and froze

Thick doors locked and shut

Smiling mouths bite and cut

Sacred ritual comes to a close

Pretty dress over broken soul

Clean hands stained with sin

Dark book condemned with

Quiet voice sad and unheard

Stale air unsettled and stirred

Curly lashes wet but open

Red heart bleeding and broken

Thick doors like a cage

Smiling mouths filled with rage

Sacred ritual meant to smite

Pretty dress turned black as night

Dirty hands snatch and claw

Dark book lays out the law

Silent voice no longer pleading

Still heart no longer beating

Justice served, a final consequence

A fresh grave, A place to rest
