Nu'uanu Nightmare
2010 by L. Hernandez


She was seventeen, almost eighteen
A Punk Rocker in Hawai'i
He was seventeen, outcast and mean
Useless and never trying

They thought that no one understood
He'd make the big time, yeah, for good

So, underneath the full moonlight
He said, "If you trust me, close your eyes."
She felt the cold steel of his knife
He made the news, he took her life

Murder in Nu'uanu Cemetery
Her life to have, to hold, to end
Murder in Nu'uanu Cemetery
And now the cameras turn to him
For fifteen minutes
