Where the lgihts flicker and the moon shines bright,

The marvel of the Metro fades in the pitch black twilight.

How strange, is it not? No shots are heard nor guns at play,

But strangely, there seems to be a new body everyday.

It rises, by the tens. It never ceases to stop.

It rises, in height. Bodies piled on top.

 

How did they get there? What did they do when they still stood up straight?

They were warned time after time, but their stubborness led to their fate.

Who knew a gram of dust or a puff of smoke was that lethal.

"Again", say the people, "Isn't the penalty just medieval?"

"No!", argues the boss, "It's reasonable if your doing something illegal."
