A Secret Plan


Devil's Delight

Tribute: This poem was based on a true story in Johannesburg, where a 17
year old boy walked into school and attacked some kids with a sword.
One boy of 16 was killed.

A secret plan inside his head,
He wouldn't stop till they were dead.
The masked boy marched over the ground,
Looking, searching, without a sound.

Set on auto, unspooling thread,
A secret plan inside his head.
Then he drew his sword from his side,
Nowhere to run, no place to hide.

His foe stood there, frozen in fear,
The swordsman slashed from ear to ear.
A secret plan inside his head.
The blood ran free, the blood ran red.

It's not a tale of days gone by,
Took place at school just last July.
School kids are screaming, filled with dread,
A secret plan inside his head.
