A house of colour filled with wandering eyes;
And all the eyes are blind.

He has chalked to us a sum.

A something in the air, intangible,
Yet stiff with meaning, struck my senses sick!-

Indicating 16 minutes of more pain..
Through the chaos of nerves in his brain he calculates the time, revaluates his plan and awaits death.

With its harsh laughter, nor for sound of sighs.

Of fortune's favoured sons, not me.

And saturate with the nectar of their kind.

That everyone get ere the judgement.
