traunt

Traunt

A simple job to do

Paid well in advance

Quite a few sheckles

For such a minimal task

And yet, all these incentives

You

Were nowhere to be found

So now

I must start the task

A new job

One that will be used

As a sort of payback

For nights you’ll sleep

With the worry hanging around

Just like the rope

That will soon caress your throat
