The mockingbird screams its final tune
As mayhem ensues.
Dark eyes watch the carniage
Burning wreck, insolvent individuals
Running to and fro, hands in hair
Charred with ash, gravel, dirt.
What is this Earth?
What is this humanity?
The Raven watches entranced
Awaiting its last macabre dance.
Anticipaiting its final meal.
Rest assured it will be fulfilling.
Black eyes peruse,
Unfeeling of the situation,
Of the pain and the emotion,
Only carrion here
Where brother fights brother, kills sister.
Lest we forget
Fundementally 46 gene pairs
make us the same.
“Belief structure” makes us different.
Holier than though-than whom?
The starling above,
Makes no reference to the burning and bellowing below.
Continues its flight
Not caring for warring nations.
