Slowly walking to the square,
They carry precious sacrifices.
A cage.
A globe.
A brown guitar.
To the gallows they go.

Quickly walking to the square,
He carries papers with seals.
For him.
For her.
For the hangman himself.
How tall will the gallows grow?

The author's comments:
In response to the poem, The Hangman by Maurice Ogden.
