Icons Of Dark


Very common in human history
In name of faith- same
Some
-Monopolize hearts and minds of crowd -
Hijack the role of religion as the code of god
To gain the power and cast
The death and misery
Upon divided man
Icons of dark smoky
And insane
In theirs- faith
Bloody ritual thirsty
Fangs- their
Sectarian holds us in diffuse hate

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
