Speak Up

Speak Up

A mime stood at the gallows
As innocent as the north star
When given a last chance to speak
He stayed true to his art

The people they came by the hundreds
To see this final act
They all knew that his lips were sealed
And that he would not crack

A solemn tear ran down a painted face
As he waived the crowd farewell
Then his voice was heard for the very first time saying
"I'll see you all in Hell"

The whole crowd gasped together
And the hangman fell to the ground
The mime removed the rope from his neck
And tip-toed home without a sound
