As scenes of carnage go, this one is slight:
No blood or gore clot up this quiet scene.
When death came these red men put up no fight,
Just stood there eerily calm and serene.
Says Doctor Vuhl, "I must investigate!
This is extraordinary!" but a yank
Upon his garment stops him. "No, just wait,"
Yectara orders. "They're dead and I'll thank
You if you'll see to Pepi first." "I'll try,"
The Doctor says, "But really we should check
To see that what killed them can't hurt us. I
Do have suspicions, but --" "I did not trek
This distance for these creatures, do not care
About their fate." Vuhl withers 'neath her glare.
