The Cripple Who Is Whole - Poem by Ian Jobst

Destruction is beautiful
'tis but a start for purging of soul and of blood
it is not Noah's arc, but instead the great flood
Destruction is terrible
it obliterates with neither empath or care
It destroys those whose loss we can't bear
Destruction is blissed
it does what it will without heart or mind
It rides amongst all with senses all blind
Destruction is proud
It believes it's infallible and immune to all rules
It has no time for whom it believes to be bigots or fools
Destruction is the pit from which we all came
We and destruction think and act and see all the same
