A Question

Rating: 1.9

to propitiate god
or so men would go
the deepest pit of cruelty
always in the name of god
a fair game?
a beheaded buffalo
stood for a second
and then collapsed
like the twin tower
its heart still trying
to beat out a life
the worshippers
then josted for a piece of him
godlike?

inspired by

A Question
A voice said, Look me in the stars
And tell me truly, men of earth,
If all the soul-and-body scars
Were not too much to pay for birth.
