Some said he was a hero
with bulletproof chest,
defused mines with a foot.
Others said he was a wife
beater, giving her cheeks bruises
like they were a knot in wood.
Others said he treated his
kids as if they were made
Some said he beat his
neighbours until their bodies
were like jam inside.
Others said he’s buried without
fault. Some said the soil refused
to cover him up, such was his bile.
