Tortured Children

Posted by

demons thank us like Iago’s claws

always

scrawl their thoughts over god’s

always

torture their plan, gratuitous

again

give up reciting their reasons

again

vaccinate, defend your mind

before

darkest evil over us spread

before

dawn of other stung us with its poison

once upon a time

nudes preferred the evening light

once upon a time

Jesus called the little children to His feet

he died

tired of the light His skin spied its end

ahead

a vacancy for His promise of life

ahead

kings and queens play divine

today

tortured children die in cages

today

their blood flushes raw the emptiness

forever

where our hearts used to be, now gone

forever
