A boy stood motionless in the heat of the day.
The corpse of someone dead outstretched 10 feet away.
The horrible scent of death was rife, the body getting darker where it lay.
The boy frozen, to see a human turning to dead meat was hideous.
A nerve twitched and he turned and ran.
Find help and fix his desperately ruptured soul if he can.
Then he found his dad cutting leather and cried and babbled to the man.
A dignified end then began for the man who lost his life.
Someone was sent to go and find his wife.
