The Ground's Boots

By jamesaguiar - Posted on 25 September 2014

between hatred's poles
runs the blood of souls
caught in the violence
of true malevolence
wrought by those who seek refuge
in rhetoric's refuse
that crushes in a vice
the innocent lives
of those caught between-
cut from what their lives might mean
but for the culture of isolation
vile stagnation
at either end
unmoved from stances that can't bend

so the streets run red
with the blood of helpless dead

who will shed tears
hence one hundred years
when new hatreds derive
from those who survive?
