Live by the sword





A winters early evening.......

The old lady
making her way home
hunched
against a cold wind

this time she's left it too late

king of the predators
a.k.a. Prince
follows in the shadows

he makes his move
takes the old dear from the back

they fall to the ground
easy meat

a vice like grip,crushes his wrist

"my god she's inhumanley strong"
the knife
rises and falls
rises and falls

back home in the bathroom......

The wig goes into a plastic bag
followed by clear surgeons gloves
blood splattered clothing

next days headlines........

Vigilante strikes again..reward for information

hero.... Kills prince of thieves.....
