THE KOREAN LEADER AND HIS WHITE DOG
- n. le`der-ONE WHO LEADS OR COMMANDS.
by: LjBeane1@aol.com

...the white dog.
...the white dog hanging,
...the white dog hanging from a tree.
...strangling.
...strangled by a man,
...strangled by a man he knew as his LEADER.
...the man,
...the man, the LEADER of the dog,
...strangles him slowly.
...he loosens his hold of the rope,
...the rope that secures the noose around the neck of the white dog.
...the white dog,
...the white dog hanging from the tree,
...gasps for air.
...the white dog hanging from the tree, gasping for air, grabs for a branch!

...the white dog fails.
... the white dog is hanging from the tree.
...the LEADER of the dog secures the rope,
...the LEADER of the dog secures the rope and walks toward the white dog.

...the white dog is hanging from the tree.
...the white dog grabs again for a branch!
...the leader of the dog, the white dog hanging from the tree,
...picks up a brick
...the Leader of the white dog picks up a brick and slams it into the white dog's head!

...the white dog screams!
...pain, terror, confusion, PAIN, TERROR, CONFUSION!!

...these are the reactions of the white dog,
...the white dog hanging from the tree.
...the white dog hanging from the tree no longer has a left eye!
...the white dog hanging from the tree has a fractured skull and missing teeth!

...the brick with its
newly acquired bloody eye,
...the brick watches.
...watches the white dog hanging from the tree.
...the leader
...the leader of the dog tightens the noose,
...tightens the noose on the white dog with no left eye, fractured skull and missing

...teeth.
...the white dog hanging from the tree is strangling,
...ears of the dog hear only rushing heartbeats.
...inside the fractured skull of the white dog hanging from the tree, pressure builds.

...the white dog hanging from the tree needs air!
...the leader of the white dog loosens the noose,
...loosens the noose that is around the neck of the white dog.
...the white dog hanging from the tree.
...the white dog hanging from the tree, struggles, for a branch, for his breath.
...the leader of the white dog,
...the leader repeatedly kicks and beats the white dog,
...the white dog hanging from the tree
... the leader kicks the white dog with no left eye, fractured skull and missing teeth

...the white dog feels tendons snap, muscles tear and bones break.
...the brick watches with it's dried eye,
... watches the white dog hanging from the tree,
...the leader of the dog again tightens the noose,
... the leader tightens the noose that is around the neck of the white dog.
...the white dog
...the white dog???? THE WHITE DOG???????? WHITE!! ---WHITE!!--
THE DOG WAS WHITE...HANGING FROM THE TREE.
HE WAS A WHITE DOG HANGING FROM A TREE!!!
.....................................................................
...The white dog has died
...The leader feels much joy.
...Tomorrow when the leader smiles you will see the white dog

...You will see the white dog, there, between his leader's teeth
THE LEADER -n, le`der- one who leads or commands.
