A War Rages

A war rages

An indefinable putrification

Of all we see and hear.

 

Screaming harpees

Flitter about as vicious hounds

Tear each other apart.

 

The mad politicians

Vomit up explanations and exclamations

Of factitious lie and illegitimate truths.

 

Bystanders are massacred

Children are eaten

The elderly are raped.

 

What will we see next?

What sounds to come?

How long before the rest of us drown in the blood?
