Reflections on a Death

a poem by Joshua Brown

Trample on the bones of those who held your neck.

Walk over them in carelessness on path to success.

Take away their power by being unstoppable now.

Give them the finger and disrespect their abuses.

Hateful in death on those who demanded obeisance.

Be hated in life by those who adopted his sadism.

Now free from the childhood command to kneel.
Others kneel to the dead to receive their evil spirit.
