Magpie - Poem by Wilfred Mellers

Written by: Wilfred Mellers, Wednesday, May 4,2011, @ 12: 51 PM

Violence washes your sore feet
Carnivore stuffs their bellies with the anguishes meat
Staunch was the summer heat
Filled the winters with your deceit

They came to subjugate and divide
A feast of blood cooked and well fried
Babies died so the angels cried
Dressed in white Satan's bride

Passed and future now collide
Never royalty for lack of pride
The weak shall be swept aside
The gates of heaven shall open wide

Those worthy shall step inside
Those who are not shall be cleared by the tide
You can run but you cannot hide
Consumed by flames he watches by the fireside

Your existence was nothing more than a lie
Everything you’ve done you tried to deny
This world was your apple pie
Plastic smiles the cohort spy

Your hordes always on standby
Evil was your only true ally
Picnics gather as ropes we worn as a necktie
Complacent for you were always anti

Ears closed to the outcry
Never your cup ran dry
Your wealth, anything you could buy
Perversion, anything you would try

Now your bombs burst high in the sky
Irradiated so you can no longer multiply
Birds no longer fly
Cannot find not a single dry eye

Hatred sang for a lullaby
Forked tongue in suits sly
Crushed the life out of the firefly
Spreading your gospel was your reply

Celebrating no longer in July
Songs of love no longer to you apply
Reasoning and logic your deeds defy
Gone will be your tomorrow now to a sad goodbye
