When Angels Cry - Poem by James Casey

When Angels Cry

Hellish armies march in formation
Eternal destruction - battle cry of damnation
War and poverty throughout each nation
Nothing seems to stop their destination

Abandoned children - broken - left to die
Natures once bountiful earth - in short supply
Greed and corruption - we cannot deny
Enlightenment - rejected as a lie
All those many children - broken - left to die


Liberties taken for granted - gone awry
Spite - moral scar of mankind - evils ally
Compassion held in captivity - deprivation
Revelation revealed - the end is near - desperation

You ask - is there any salvation...
...when angels cry


Jim 1966
