run to the wind hardloop teen die wind
play with the ashes speel in die as
respect none resek vir niks
pray upon fear soek vrees uit
taste venom proe die gif
hear the screams luister na die gille
touch the blood vat aan bloed

little putter, voetjies sag,
little patter, voetjies soet,
of new death. van die nuwe dood.
touch me once raak my een keer
touch you twice. raak jou twee keer.
twisted mind verwronge gedagtes
empty word lee woorde
mean what? Beteken wat?
needing more benodig meer
string it together. Ryg dit aan mekaar

Well done!
