Die Macbeth

Now can you blame mankind?
When in their pure minds
give in to nothing
but evil-evil temptation
and unholy beauty?
The sort that shelters storms
and topples Troy!
Breaking rules, crossing seas
all for the ends to the means that’s me.
You, my friend, make your own choice.
To scream or give in to hushed voices
and the choice of walking fires with me.
Is a call that’s only yours, you see.
The last call is hence
yours to make.
Walk pious knight
Or die Macbeth.
