Pain, fear, un-remorseful jabs on his face.
Wide open palms swinging to his cheek bone 
Tightened fists to face Head butts, kicks, spits and rants Swinging club to knee.
Crack! crack!, the ribs are sounding,
Heart is pacing.
A joint feeling of fear and pain Cripples the spine

...Can you see through his eyes?

The mob.

Running through the wind in fear,
The crowd behind him, hurling things in the air 
Slicing through his fear ...Objects breezing near. 
He can't seem to keep them off his rear.

They catch up to him.

Bang! On the head, rolls on floor
Pounding increasing accompanying the uproar.
Sticks, planks and metals rising up and down to his almost lifeless body... 
In symphony of a determined goal; the kill.

His sight is blurred, 
with tears and blood.

Rod to the chest planks to head left for dead.
Tyres roll in, then gasoline and match.

Strike!... There was fire... Then nothing.

Mob disperses.

Did u see through his eyes?


  1. Its impossible to not see thru his eyes.
    Do we not feel pain?
    I can hear him screaming.
    Sadly this happens day in, day out. And the crowd disperses. I dunno who's sicker: the people that do the clubbing, burning or those who cheer or silently watch?
    God help us.

  2. Mob Justice. Nice piece. like the rhyming.

    1. Thanks Dennis. Jungle justice it really is.

    Aphoristic and detailed. Nice piece.

    1. Hmmm, Churu. Apho gini? Thanks all the same.

  4. Nearly missed this Marcelo.

    Graphic account of mob violence. Frenzy clouds vision so it is doubtful the mob would see through his eyes - yet glory at his fear.

    We humans are not really very nice are we? Civilised we are not - how easy it is for us to return to the beast we still are...hiding just under the surface...

    Anna :o]

    1. Yes, rightly said Anna. We are just not nice but naturally mean folks. We try to get over that but given the right circumstances and environment, anyone can bring out the mean side of him/her.

      Thanks for your comment Anna. :)
