WHAT DOES MERCY DO?

What does mercy do?

When time comes
that it must
choose between
letting them
feel their own pain,
something that, in any case,
in some or other
way or vein,
they must go through,

and making them
as numb
as possible,
till cries fade down
to inaudible,
as do their feeling
hums and smiles,
though they must
live yet a while,
just like me
and you?
