Burn them alive



Burn them all
Said the voice
As I watched them die
Leave none alone
As they sobbed and cried
Ready for the moment
Of truth to arrive
One last tear
Falling from the eye
Today is liberation
You shall see
From your abomination
For which you bleed
Curse my father
Deny his son
Today in Hell
Your life has begun
When you touch the dragon
You do get burned
A witch's lesson-learned
