Conspiracy Of Blood


Here all matters are decided
On the gun point,
For no one is to spend
The coins of words.
O! My enemy,
Invade not my cities yet,
For there nestle in the trees,
The guest-birds.
We dare not love one another,
Here in such a season,
When sits there coiled,
A snake of fear.
We shall have to demolish,
The wall of hostility, for the city wall
Impedes no aggression.
There rests on my lashes,
The dream of survival of human race,
The weapons cannot vanquish
My thoughts, I have spent
Lifetime lifting up human-logs
From the battlefield, now
My heart urges for rest a slight.
Tonight again I sense a conspiracy
Of blood in the eyes of death,
Someone should awake my army
From the dormant sleep.

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
