A gallery of gawkers gazed,
Hatred-hazed eyes accuse
Guilty truths of dire deeds.
Justice feeds on dark souls.

Hungry god-eyes see
Heavens key yanked away.
Xaphan waves, stoking flames
St. Peters games await me.

Plungers promise painless death,
Ceased breathe steals my voice.
Long-past moments choice.
The plungers voice, a treacherous lie.

Hellfires dark embers burn.
Demons turn, await.
My fate, my crime.
So little time in eternity.
