"To give anything less than your best is to sacrafice the gift." -Steve Prefontaine


Who done it? They asked
Where have they all gone? They asked
We should hold a meeting. They stated
We will search the homesteads! They exclaimed

Crushed skulls

Slit thoughts


5 Drum Creek


11 Apple Orchard


1 Well


2 Missing Travelers


1 child


100,000 dollars


12 bullet holes
12 arrests for “bad repute”


3 hammers


2 years

Hidden in four elements

Many were to lament

Spsh wish woo
The Benders knew what they had to do
With three days to shoo
Into the stormy blue
