"I have great faith in fools, self-confidence my friends call it." - Edgar Allan Poe

Head, back, hands, and knee
Be still and let me set my string
And let me play my only part
Let me strum your puppet heart
And let me go by ear
To my hymn of perfect fear
So sing my name or cry
Sing alone before you die
You, the bargain, marionette deal
I caught my bait and now I reel
So let me pull your hand
Let me let you fall or stand
You let me this and I your due
So be still and wait your cue

This poem is simply death as a puppeteer speaking to his "puppet" (someone about to die).
