Somebody to hang

Somebody to hang

By L. Stewart Marsden

 

Sometimes we need somebody to hang;
Somebody’s neck to stretch;
Somebody’s back to break;
Somebody to bear the blame
and wear the shame —
to go quietly into that good night;
who will bow and bleed
and be the scape —
make the hate and hurt and anger
gradually burn to ash —
the rancor worked completely out.

We got the rope.
Now, where is that somebody?
