Monolith of old oak
At the edge of the town
Atop a grim hill
Where you will meet your death

Strung up by your ankles
The rope chaffs your skin
Naked and covered in bruises
Soon it will begin

The men arrive from the valley
Summoned by their king
In hoods of black they walk
Sullen in duty
A rusty saw is produced
Yet the teeth are sharp enough
As the blood rushes to your head
They ascend the platform

Execution in horrific form
The saw approaches you
At first the edge struggles
To tear into your body

A terrible scene of gore
Your torso is no more
Tearing apart your entrails
Until it ends at your neck
Blood is rushing downward
Trickling in the sewer
The pit beneath is filling
With chunks of your flesh

Monolith of old oak
At the edge of the town
The gallows atop the grim hill
Where you have met your death


from Count the Worms, released January 16, 2016
