The undead sit and sing
sad songs of angst
while the disillusioned discuss betrayal
with the ghost of past facts.
Their dread dripping from dead sores
in ringlets of despair
onto marble faced blocks of reality.
While, remorse, written on the stone
of graveyard debris
lies in the orchard of buried dreams.
within the pockmarked walls
in the cathedral of glass,
while priests conspire
in a halo of flies.
The lone voice of dissent
is persecuted by the wings of eagles,
with talons of stone,
for the query of catechism.
Twin sons of the past
preach revenge and retribution
against tribes of hate,
giving false security in destroying
the blind children of barbarians.
Drunk on fermented prophecies
the two headed dogs
of greed and deceit
speak in a different tongue
to each ear that hears
Mesmerizing the nations of doubt,
with the kiss of Judas.
Inciting the white eyed demons
with the armor of self righteousness
to follow the fallacious zealots
onto the battlefield of corruption.
From the throne in the house of the holy
to the rotunda in the tower of power
the prophets of truth are discredited and denied.
Hypnotizing the catatonic believers
To sacrifice their sons and daughters
On the altar of martyrs.
