Innocuous Knife

Grasping its hilt, gauging its weight; a knife.
Innocuous use or extinguish life?
Slicing and dicing through the skin and flesh,
carving and cleaving through the meat and bone.
Get your hands dirty in the oozing mess
discard of the pieces into the fire.
Grasping its hilt, gauging its weight; a knife.
Innocuous use or extinguish life?
Hear the meat sizzle, watch the skin shrivel,
skewer the meat, watch the red juices flow.
Careful, wipe down the smeared, serrated blade,
slide it inside its protective casing.
Grasping its hilt, gauging its weight; a knife.
Innocuous use or extinguish life?
