Pamphlets of Prophets

Pamphlets of Prophets

 

And in the barren face of sanity

I scavenged

For hope

 

Hope between the bleeding

Stain

 

Full forces littered the bodies

Pamphlets of prophets

In useless streets

 

Streets paved with dead

Dreams

 

Burning crosses

Burning flags

The caricatures of hate

 

Hate in the Holy walls and domes of

Jerusalem

 

And in the coloured face of madness

I found the ever smile

Of borrowed light

 

Light in the Holy walls and domes of

Death

 

Death in weeping children sung its dirge

In the sacrificial arms of

Love

 

Love ?

 

What love is there between the ruins of bone and shattered blood

Siren screaming its danger to flesh

This Auschwitz strip

This apocalypse

Is a lament unheeded

Of starved and parchment skeletons

Turning in their graves

Piteous demise of theirs

Wasted

 

Full forces littered the bodies

Pamphlets of prophets

In useless streets
