The Iconoclast

A caustic presence overshadows this room
a stench so foul it chokes the dead
throttling him in the dark
he shouts in vain, beating the walls for life
his lungs burn with a fury to shatter conformity
his death tolls at last, as an echo of truth rings forth.

A revolution is never easy
but as generations roll over, his yearning is shunned
