Plague

No peace at home
none abroad
gone from hearts
evil lauds

mouths keep flapping
thespians acting
evil plans
we’re still reacting

fear and hatred
filling souls
evil winning
full control

eye for eye
tit for tat
the human species
plaguing like rats

violence for violence
blood for blood
turned cold shoulders
no more love

master architect
devil’s charade
draw us in
win the day

blood is blood
death is death
whatever the hand
is shooting with

too far now
no more control
end stage cancer
broken souls

point of no return
no escape
she takes it back
a coup de grace
