A dark piece of espionage poetry (you have been warned!)

The Tailor

Before me slumps a bloodied corpse

Before me slumps a bloodied corpse beyond the window rest three more

Before me slumps a bloodied corpse beyond the window rest three more my calloused fingers drip with blood

Before me slumps a bloodied corpse beyond the window rest three more my calloused fingers drip with blood which flows across the floor

the rules lie broken in the lock

the rules lie broken in the lock I'm bound by countless lies

the rules lie broken in the lock I'm bound by countless lies I'm grey and craggy like a ghost

the rules lie broken in the lock I'm bound by countless lies I'm grey and craggy like a ghost the one you should despise

I wash my hands, but scent remains

I wash my hands, but scent remains perhaps it always will

I wash my hands, but scent remains perhaps it always will but as I walk the promenade

I wash my hands, but scent remains perhaps it always will but as I walk the promenade I barely feel a chill

I've bribed, and cheated, now I've killed

I've bribed, and cheated, now I've killed made fraud on epic scale

I've bribed, and cheated, now I've killed made fraud on epic scale but as I gaze at all around

I've bribed, and cheated, now I've killed made fraud on epic scale but as I gaze at all around I breathe in calm exhale

a thousand faces laugh and smile

a thousand faces laugh and smile life teems with circus bread

a thousand faces laugh and smile life teems with circus bread for if I'd failed to do my deeds

a thousand faces laugh and smile life teems with circus bread for if I'd failed to do my deeds these folk would all be dead

the cloth I weave is intricate

the cloth I weave is intricate it shrouds my textbook crimes

the cloth I weave is intricate it shrouds my textbook crimes as golden heroes take the stand

the cloth I weave is intricate it shrouds my textbook crimes as golden heroes take the stand I clap their pantomimes
