Their Lifeless Bodies

Their Lifeless Bodies

Karyn Indursky

Nestled in bed
two innocent parents
slept soundly with
insurance money hanging
over their heads
before a dagger
plunges into them
as their shrieking
in utter horror
without a chance
of surviving against
a masked man
with a mission
from a son
to leave him
their lifeless bodies.
