300. Kill them

Shakespeare said:
“The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.”

My ascetic-fanatic friend says:
The first thing I do,
Let me kill all the singers.
They have no right
To destroy my Lord’s Ears.

The second thing I do,
Let me kill all the dancers.
They have no right
To destroy my Lord’s Eyes.

The third thing I do,
Let me kill all the loud God-worshippers.
They have no right
To destroy my Lord’s Silence-Peace.
