Head on head
The plans passed on
Step by step
The covers were spread
By the divine,
The soothsayer
Chants refurbished.
Ideologies and politics,
Charities and aid,
War and peace.
Head on head
They moved
To yet open other
Chapters of abject
Darkness and ignorance,
Head on head,
They denied
The truth.
Head on head
They had been
Distributing
The promised bounties,
Amongst themselves.
Head on head
Many lines were drawn,
Permanent
Everlasting and not-erasable.
On the heads.
