Connor O Hearn

Connor 'O' Hearn 

Legend has it there's a man buried here
Who's fate was simply unfair
In a rural town of Hollow crest
An innocent man lais to rest 
 
Connor 'O' Hearn 
Was sentenced to burn
1745 he drew his last breath
An innocent man put to death 
 
For a crime he did not commit
On that stake he was lit 
Swallowed by hells flames
Never forgetting those faces and names
 
All those witness's who testified
Now he lays here unjustified 
Said they saw him late that night 
In the fields under the moonlight
 
Killing his own daughter and son
In a drunken frenzy of torturous fun 
He swore on oath he was in bed asleep
Someone else took his children to keep
 
For two days the whole town searched
Now his named forever smirched 
Town council didn't believe his alibi's
So they condemned Connor for his lies
 
They staked him up on the outskirts of town
In a large corn field where no one was around
They left him there for the crows to eat 
Bound by wire his hands and feet
 
Days went by and he was barely alive
Kept fighting on, by his will to survive
They checked up on Connor every few days
Then one day with the height of the maize 
 
They searched all over unable to find
They couldn't reach Connor in time
Weeks later they found his poor soul
His meaty flesh clinging to the pole 
 
So they cut the wire and he slumped to the ground
They lit him on fire with his feet still bound
That's why to this day when you see him
He can't walk or use any parts of his limbs
 
His spirit lives on in every corn crop
From town to town it never stops 
His voice echoes between the corn rows
His body forever entombed in a scarecrow

        Lol. Id love to do the scary voice over reading your poem…hmmm. If you like, I could even make that into a slideshow/movie for you when I get a chance. It would be fun and credit would be yours. What do you think ? I had some strong visuals reading your work bro.
