The Call Of The Prophet

War has made war upon the world
but none has perceived her delicacies
The ring of death has been given to earth
Yet the undead seems to forget.

Death has laid eggs upon our hearth
and all we do is yap for years.
The navel of our soul has been disvirgined
but we sit waiting for a sheep.
