His Last words

Picture credit: Daniel Hayman

The tea was going cold. But tea could wait. Not his pen. The writing on the wall was loud and clear.  All the riches of the world cannot be as persuasive as an impending appointment with the firing squad.  He would not let his thoughts disappear from the face of the earth along with him.
