He once knew of a sun that shone in the summer and hid in the winter.
Now it shines without question; thawing, choking. With faces hidden behind masks. Breathe.
He lived amongst the gluttonous. Greed evolving on a factory belt. A salty death in the slaughterhouse and in the hospital bed.
An innocent boy guilty of invisible crimes.
Monsters from under the bed living inside a textbook – the fable of a different life.
All the while, a monster’s statue stands proud in a far land of darkness and explosion.
Bombs over Baghdad.
But as one flag drops, another flies: the anthem of black and white.
Faceless martyrs create headless visions of the future; for God is great.
Primal indulgence condemned by larger hearts and higher minds – years of evolution silenced in the name of progress.
Dreams of serene excursion shattered by those willing to join their deceased in holy hell fire.
Hide from your brothers, see the fire in your neighbours eyes.
