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.
