Horrible Death

III. Departed To The Judgment

III.

Departed to the judgment,
A mighty afternoon;
Great wires like lightning forking,
Students looking on.

The flesh excited, electrified,
But experiment awry;
Two worlds, like audiences, disperse:
The patient over-fried.

 

The actual mortified one. Interpretation. Image: The Extraction of the Stone of Madness (The Cure of Folly) by Hieronymous Bosch.
