More Anomalies A – Z: Lamech

Oh, I wasn’t blind; I knew it was him
when I drew back the bow string.
I nocked the arrow and said his name:
I clapped my hands to watch him fall,
spouting crimson blood into the air
and clutching at the shaft I’d loosed.

Hear me Adah, I am Lamech!
6th from Cain among the sons of men.
Hear me, Zillah, I am 7th down from Adam;
listen to me.  Hear what I say.

I take what I want
and deserve what I get.
Wound me if you are weak;
I’ll kill in return because I am strong.

If grandfather Cain is avenged sevenfold
then I will be avenged seventy and seven again.
