Chicken and shrimp?

Chicken and shrimp

i sit here beneath the burning cross
watching out of the corner of my mind,
they read their books,
their papers, their bibles, their eulogies,
silently praying to gods I have long forgotten
or maybe never even knew,
adorned in bright green head gear,
peering through eyes of steel,
watching intently,
as their offspring cling to the face of the moon,
feet tapping,hands wrung tight around mounds of jade
and gold,
waiting patiently to pounce upon my thoughts,
raping my soul,my words,my poetry,
all falling upon deaf ears and dismembered bodies,
I hang my head and devour my ideologies,
for I know I am no longer human,
living in this world of pain,
memories of the past trapped in fires of damnation,
begging forgiveness from mountains,plains,plateaus, and desserts,
all adorned with the blessing of hell,
and the blood of the past,
for a future that will never be
and a life that will remain the same,
their beautiful souls sail silently through
the spring snowfall,
unnoticed by those who have accepted this earth as their dying grace,
screams of the innocent rain upon this world,
as the tears flow from her eyes,
I bury my head,
In my chicken and shrimp,
and feel the pain of humanity,
and the
my thoughts……………
