Children of An Evil Calling

But we are, in a sense, much like him somehow
insanely and ignorantly narcissistic in our greed.

We would eat everything alive.
Destroy ourselves
and also
everyone

on a lazy bet.

The Plague

A thousand times older and more afraid
in washing disease
of guilt and fleas
in the care and desire
of beloved kin
in a world burning up
in our passion's fire
beyond even the scope of our sin.
