Blood Dwyer (A Hemorrhage To Budd Dwyer)

Poem By Michael Fischer

(Budd Dwyer was an American politician who, on January 22,1987, committed suicide by shooting himself in the mouth with a revolver during a televised press conference. He was facing was 55 years imprisonment and a $300,000 fine for receiving a kickback of the same amount. But he claimed he was innocent throughout the whole trying experience.)

Days to throw away,
wasted on old ways.
A life to throw away
because of foul play!

You always have death
to fall back on!
So blindfold your eyes
and end the lie!

It's the perfect end
to your legacy;
Lead taint on the walls,
poison Hennessey...

We live life as thieves;
We live to deceive!

You forfeit to God;
He overwhelmed you.
You misplayed his bluff
and folded too soon.

You always have death
to fall back on!
So blindfold your eyes
and end the lie!

It's the perfect end
to your legacy;
Lead taint on the walls,
poison Hennessey...

We live life as thieves;
We live to deceive!

Life's but a cruel joke;
And it's not funny!

But...

It's the perfect end
to your legacy!
