murder of Grigori

a lot of arsenic poison
in wine and sweet cake
royals inside the treason
game with a life at stake

cramps and then you fall
bullet in back by your host
but up the stairs you stroll
smell the snow; free almost

shot again and in chains
thrown into official's motorcar
even then you still remain
Malaya Nevka river is not far

thrown from the bridge
down through the ice
amazingly you still twitch
until you pay the price
