A COLUMBIAN NECKLACE FOR YOU

A COLUMBIAN NECKLACE FOR YOU

Instant karma flashback of hooch ambush.
As a technique, you can’t impeach ambush.

When a throat’s slit just so, a snug choker
appears. Crimson fruits of stump speech ambush.

Then, if the tongue’s pulled through right, a bowtie
bonus. Dress for dinner. Debouch ambush.

Or, gas-soaked tire ’round screaming victim’s
neck. Light. Golden oldie of torch ambush.

Molten rubber runs down torso, burning
acrid as it goes, a slow raunch ambush.

A nice device, said Haiti’s strongman priest,
Aristide. Lovely necklace, lynch, ambush.

Elegant, attractive, splendrous, graceful
and dazzling!
That Catholic could preach ambush.

But now: jihadis saw off infidels’
heads, harvested in fleet stagecoach ambush.
