TRAP DOORS

However eager 
in the mornings—
the genial self-

appointed Judge
and Jury 
were—so often,

by mid-
afternoon,
disappointed—and longing 

more than anything!
to hang 
the whole thing altogether 

that—eventually 
the menial 
Executioner,

moved 
by a curious
compassionate sensation—and exercising, 

without
much hesitation—
let alone

conviction
or deliberation 
or show of emotion— 

the position
of his 
meager office,

proceeded
to pitch
his only 

switch—and 
do them 
both a hefty favor.
