#458 The Sensational News

Decomposition takes time — depends
upon the size of the object. Retribution,
too, not always immediate, but it is
deliberate. Why else that phrase: revenge
is a dish best served cold? Sufficient of
the bird remaining to let it manipulate
the surrounds. Getting its own back
for its owners' neglect. Singing as it does
so, Stairway to Heaven, that Led Zeppelin

song. Using it as a template / timekeeper, to progress the couple's decay. First the smile wiped off their faces, so ferociously their features have come away as well. Then smoothed down, as if turned on a lathe. The final indignation still to come. Head & neck removed, to be featured as newel caps, put in place at the top of the staircase as the song comes to an end.
