This poem is in minute form.

He lived his life in shadows deep,
Took in abuse,
All they could heap,
Such cruel sheep.

He sharpened razor with a strop;
He prayed they’d stop.
When they kept on,
The lines were drawn.

His parents stopped him; now he rests,
Tied in his vest,
Moon pills orbit
Mind is forfeit.

      I do too, Sadje! I haven’t used it much, but it’s good at telling a quick story or thought.
