CITY OF BLOOD (from the original play by Timothy Venard)


over the hills by a little bay
is a little street where the children play
they think all is well.
but aloof in the air is a terrifying smell.

blood...
in the in the air
blood...
in the streets
blood...
in your veins
if your hart still beats (slow and dark) ...
well dose it?

I see a girl
I see a boy
I see a body
I see BLOOD
city of blood...
city of blood...
CITY OF BLOOD
ALIGHT WITH FLAME.
BURN IN HELL FOREVER.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
