a heart for another heart.


An eye for another eye; would definitely plunge the entire world into
a mortuary of cringing darkness—would definitely make the entire world
blind,

A tongue for another tongue; would definitely dumb the entire world
into a wall of haplessly delirious silence—would definitely make the
entire world mute,

An ear for another ear; would definitely plague the entire world into
a unfathomably deep gorge of sadistic nothingness- would definitely
make the entire world deaf,

A lip for another lip; would definitely devastate the entire world
into a corpse of irrevocably jinxed sadness- - would definitely make
the entire world flagrantly morose,

A hand for another hand; would definitely plummet the entire world
into a carcass of fetidly indescribable hopelessness- -would
definitely make the entire world beg beyond holistic heights,

A spine for another spine; would definitely incarcerate the entire
world into chains of sacrilegiously blackened slavery- -would
definitely make the entire world denigrated beyond self respect,

A stomach for another stomach; would definitely emaciate the entire
world into infinite skulls of reproachful hunger—would definitely make
the entire world vindictively starve,

A neck for another neck; would definitely curse the entire world into
an inconsolably hideous dungeon of emptiness—would definitely make the
entire world a bloodily anarchist battlefield,

A vein for another vein; would definitely devastate the entire world
into a demonically sadistic lacunae—would definitely make the entire
world plaintively emotionless,

A finger for another finger; would definitely coerce the entire world
to cacophonically beg for a lifetime on the streets—would definitely
make the entire world a pile of worthlessly rusted brittle pins,

A skin for another skin; would definitely freeze the entire world into
a gutter-pipe of shivering and cloistered hopelessness—would
definitely make the entire world crumble even under the strongest of
blistering Sun,

A shoulder for another shoulder; would definitely deteriorate the
entire world into a slushpile of abysmally pitiful remorse—would
definitely make the entire world directionless,

A leg for another leg; would definitely sink the entire world into the
marshes of despondently orphaned doomsday—would definitely make the
whole world forlornly maimed,

A scalp for another scalp; would definitely lead the entire world into
a ghost-town of venomously sordid blackness- -would definitely make
the whole world a hallucinated fool,

A bone for another bone; would definitely squelch the entire world
beyond the threshold of unimaginable despair—would definitely make the
whole world irrevocably maimed,

A tooth for another tooth; would definitely bruise the entire world
into dastardly tastelessness—would definitely make the whole world
remorsefully bland,

A cheek for another cheek; would definitely distort the entire world
into a coffin of crucified ugliness- -would definitely make the entire
world a perennially maudlin scarecrow,

A blood-drop for another blood-drop; would definitely metamorphose the
entire world into a veritably breathing hell—would definitely make the
entire world a reproachfully stinking ghost,

Whist a heart for another heart- - would definitely immortalize the
entire world into the religion of eternal mankind- - make the entire
world fall forever and ever and ever without a chance to ever rise up;
into the ocean of immortal humanity and love.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
