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



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.
