Www "A I \ Ww! 

1. The Plan 

No lights shine from these curtained windows. No moon through 
these clouds, There they lie, unaware of these watchful eyes, 

A childhood killed before it began, A royal family left with just 
one son, Mhat has this act of violence created? 

The axe has fallen. Just two strifes. The future holds so much. As 
blood fills their mouths, I rise. 

Footsteps down a frozen hallway, A sick noise shakes a child 
awake. Ceiling leaks red rain. Crawls out into an evil realm, Fran 
the threshold sharpened metal silver hiding behind maroon blinds 
young eyes. 

As blood fills their mouths, I rise, 

that's this? A survivor? Oh^ he is but a boy. Enjoy your shitty 
life, I know your brother will. 

So scared, crawl upstairs to where my nightmares breed, find my 
parents dead, love is dead. Night's moon as bright as his axe that 

2, The Job 

*0h, dear brother ^ please. Forgive our beloved father for 
premising me happiness and health but removing you f rem hone to 
survive on your own. You went against his values and his love, but 
he was our father the same. Help me find who ended our family," 

"Find someone for ire. Make sure he is strong / f 

™ Perform this job for me. In turn for him. You will never get 
close to the killer. You are a runt like father. Pathetic and 
weak. Don't return until it is done," 

Sent out empty to cold, wet streets. Hunting a man I do not yet 
know. Is his sentence just or am I as vile as my enemy? I never 
wish to know this man. Only to discover the destroyer of my world. 
Interrogating, Hiding, Stalking, prey is closer every passing 
minute , 

12) The Fall 

Up the stairs. Through the threshold. Eying every villain. 
Weighing my decisions. Told I'm requested for private counsel, 

"Come in. You have shown me true respect. You have earned this 
prize for your allegiance. My eyes are open from this tragedy, 
as man was my friend, I could -perish at any moment, I want you 

prize for your allegiance. My eyes 
This man was my friend, I could peri 

to have my empire when 

m dead. Will you accept? 

A fight breaks below, "You are finished. Through. This errpire is 
mine. Not for you. One fatal mistake. The child you passed. That 
was me. You should have never cone to that hone that night/' 

I am your pupil 

"What is this? A final betrayal? Who are you?" 

I am your wealth, I am your nightmare, I am my 

father's son. 

As blood fills my mouth, I fall

1 of a man none the wiser of what 
Secrets uncovered and lies 

m *m 0 • m :r ^ e Disposal 

In over my head again , The^eight or a man on my shoulders , This 
shroud of darkness could not be thick enough. What do I do? 
Burned, buried, or diced? Discretely erasing a life. The snap of a 
twig. The blast of a gun. Two dead, a man and a woman, lie before 
my feet. Witness, Innocence, What have I done? Two dead, a man and 
a woman. An I now the same as him? One becomes three. Three bodies 
in the quarry. What have I done? Neglect to check my work. Erase 

my tracks. Reckless, 

"Let ire

stealing from your riches 

"Listen fo him plead, plead, plead/' 

"No, no, no. You do not speak. You just listen. You think I do not 
know who you are or what you do? You are the filthy, slithering 
swine of this organization. If you had a heart I would rip it from 
your chest and I would make you swallow it whole, I will spew the 
evil from your guts, I want you to know that I am going to your 
house tonight and I will slit your family's throats while tney 

"Oh, dear brother, I found him. Your a 
neighbor, He is the killer, He ended our 

this city's throne. With your inherited power

How could you be so blind? I thought you were on 

side, I guess 

house tonight and I will slit your family's th 
sleep. You will not have a chance to be missed 
know you're gone," 

They will never 

'Allow me, sir, please, I will rid this rat from your world 

not this time. How could you be so blind? I gave then both enough 
time to share what should have been mine. All mine, I threw him 
where you can not find him, I can't believe I did this to him, but 

I had to. What can I say? What do I do, now?" 

"Dad was right to cast you out. Your greed and hatred infested 
from the start. Now I feiow the oriain of vour strength and aold. 

You disgust me, How

"No! I've seme

ust for him, A blade sharp and still stained 
low me," 

st you out. Your greed and hatred infested 
know the origin of your strength and gold, 
re you sit in his chair, in this tower, in 
. with your existence," Another bullet from 

Wearing a new shade of 
display of punishment. 

Mind far behind the 
his ducks in a row 

eyes, A final 

"Remove this filth from my sight. Heed this though, young man. No 
one may know. Do not be seen. Do not be heard. Do not : be felt," 

Could I have been 

my scythe. Another piece of family lost, 

8) The Distrust 

9) The Assassin 
a fool? Trusted too soon? I fear I have been 

A second class member buried in distrust. Falling behind in my 
mutinous scheme, ^Excuse me, Boss, I'll be back soon," Someone 
close behind. Mind bent on destruction. Following, Heart racing, A 
stranger. Gun pulled. Aiming at my goal, A shot, A shout. The 
stranger falls down. My prey still stands. My gun warm. From 

outcast to savior. 

10) The Art 

Cone, Boy, and you shall see the proper ways of this craft. You 
threw three bodies f ran a dock? Seek deeper waters and make sure 
they will not float. Not even fisherman's nets will find the mass 
graves you leave for this Earth, 

I beseech. Don't allow your defenses to be breached. No lights, N 
noise. This is a job for the dead of night. 
Cut them into pieces! Throw than overboard! One bag at a time! 
Meet the ocean floor! 

A bludgeoned greeting. The gift of a duct tape jacket. For it's a 
cold walk to the c&p tonight where your remains will equal the 

Now you are a cog in the machine! Now you are the silent killer 

this world needs! X 
We send our sins to sink! The sea swallows them whole! 
Set them free. This is the circle of life. The unfortunate truth 
for those of us in this business. Survival of the fittest and we 
are the strongest ones. 

Thieves sink. Liars sink. Bastards sink. Traitors sink. Never 
underestimate the power of your will. You can ccrrmit so much 
violence if you put your mind to it. Try it! Now you know what to 
do next time. The art of your life and this is your masterpiece. 

s What will I beccroe for this? This is not a road I dreamt to take, 
Would my creators judge me? I can not do this, I will not do this. 
No I can not , , , 

The moonlight's flash on my victim's frames triggers the sight in 
my mind of the tool or my love's demise. This fucking scum is 
nothing more or less than the killer to me. Inch by inch his face 
caves in. My hand, the molder of flesh and bone. Your end was not 

worthless , my friend. You will be joined by whcm I seek. 

3) The Proposition 

So soon my artwork is appreciated by workers of a similar medium, 
I find myself in a dark place on a street I never knew, "Only the 

finest eat here, Sir," Fly admirer sits. 


Could this be him? A face so young. So bold. So true. An artist 
k with an equal darkness, A voice in his head that tells him of 

11) The Plan 

In a dormant mind. Come on cone on, give me hope, to dehumanize, 
creating prized possessions in my mind, I know, getting injured, 
hold my grip on vengeance is in key of darker fall. Blood closure. 
Closure in my mind. 

Odds stacked against me at the family gathering. Odds stacked 
against me in my revenge. 

Paranoia, I fear my defenses have been breached , An old friend has 
perished. And I think I know why. 

Infiltration, Discretion, Killer with an invitation. Chameleon, 

"I saw your work, oh protege, Though I was the only one. Your 
attack was well planned, but chaotic with no doubt. Core work for 
me, for there is no better job in town. Do me this contract and 

watch yourself rise," 

At last, the moment has cone to make a name for myself, A shroud 

a cloud, to travel in behind my victim's heart, "I accept. 

4) The Officer 

Paranoia, I fear my defenses have been breached. An old friend has I've finally fucking got you. Too much time spent waiting. No one 
perished. And I think I know why, will convict you of your crimes. And so I'm nere to deliver your 

justice. You think that you could run forever? I'm sick of sitting 
Infiltration, Discretion, Killer with an invitation. Chameleon, down, you're done. The courts may buy your bullshit. Tossing your 

case out with ease. Although there's no formal evidence, I know of 
A party, A remembrance , Let us honor him, I hope I am the only one all your deeds. And I drink these nights away. Praying to God that 
to know his dark past. Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned, I may find you in a situation like the one we're in now. Time to 

die you fuck. 

Familiar environment. Hire foolish men, Distractions, His deadly 

heirloom is rightfully mine and will sever him limb f ran limb 
deadly heirloom in rightfully mine and so is my revenge.
