MURDER MOST FOUL
Successive stars have forged their name
in the heat of the cinema killing game.
Sylvester Stallone stands alone for
rampant destruction for a worthy cause;
Liam Neeson has added a frisson
of genuine grievance to other's malfeasance.
The list is endless but there'll always be
the biters of bullets for you and me.
The English have an admiration
for more subtle means of expiration;
poisoning, blunt instruments, stillettos,
the unseen but sensed unholy ghettoes.
In any shape or form it seems,
murder must be part of our dreams.
