For all those who take the sword (Mt 26, 52) - Antonio Jesús Cruz

(To Carlos Rojas)

The naked man, lying on the bed and with his feet and hands tied, trembles. A superhuman fear catches him. He feels helpless and very alone. He recognizes the scene but he had always lived it from the other side.
A guy wearing green gown, approaches and says with strange smile " for all those who take the sword will come to death by the sword"; then he looks to the subject who is at the head of the stretcher and orders him "Give anesthesia to the doctor so we can initiate the surgery ".

Original title: "El que a hierro mata (Mt 26,52)"
Translation: Antonio Jesús Cruz
