Piano

by Barbara Thomas

  PIANO
 
In a  brilliant white room
Stands a white piano
Silent,
Untouched by human hands
Un-played and silent
Composed
That piano stands
 
In dark shadows of a jail cell
Sits a man
Silent
Untouched by emotion
Unloved and silent
Decomposing
Sits that man
 
In the brilliant white room
And the shadowy cell
A ghostly voice
Is often heard
Echoing  through the walls
[1] ‘Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too'
