They sat him down and they buckled him in,

they soaked the sponge beneath the tin,

they checked the wires and armed the switch,

he did not flinch.

not a single twitch.

the lightning surged,

the current raced,

it snatched his breath from lifes embrace,

what did he do?

we did not care,

he was just food for the chair.
