Deposed, the dead issue crunches underfoot like the snow.
I will break free from this.
A fire inside that feels like something like hope.
A fire that burns and sets me on the right path.
To wear your skin.
You see, a twinkling light was caught by eye
While these rattling ribs held the hungriest cage
And my nails and my teeth are willing and able.
I find it better if you struggle a bit
Watching blood pour over me – warm liquid canopy.
That scarlet robe – I feel like a king again.
And when that false debt is paid eating the old and the weak,
You’ll fall to your knees and continue to praise me.
Covered in the entrails of your elders and your firstborn.
I came forth from the white to end this dearth of the red, but the horror
The horror when the only way is death, the only way is death to be absolved.
And if you deign to show a kindness, the pigs squeal willingly.
Our God is a liar.
