A Young Girl’s First Kill
By: Vivona Xu
She is by the murky river side
Where she is prancing in glee
When her father arrives, she abides
But she secretly wants to flee
She creeps up flights of stairs for an answer to which I decree her to dispatch
"Hark now, fair lady! For he is your Foe!"
"Thou mustn't become attached"
"To the knife I give with woe"
During a heavy and peculiar night,
Her father staggered to the door as she swiftly finished the deed
Unaware of the new chaos she will ignite,
She does not pay great heed
She jumps, skips, and joyfully runs away
Unbeknownst that her old town has turned gray
