POETRY / A BOLD LINE DRAWN

Deep in the trenches the nocturnals scurry 

A night like this brings no gifts for the living 

On the hunt their gnashing brings bitterness to the taste 

So in disgust they must toss their corpse to the waste 

I bring the sorry life out of its misery

For that is the purpose my father gives to me

These creatures run aimlessly with no life to feed their hunger 

I look to my brothers and see them rest in their slumber 

The warnings of a sour cup is to be filled 

Yet has been lost in translation as blood drips by His will. 

I beg for it to be taken away

but never will I allow selfishness to be led in this fray

Just then the representative appears with coins and a kiss 

The march of madness was enough to wake a sword from abyss 

Yet foolish as we are we live and die by what’s drawn 

So I rebuke the blade and line up killing starts after dawn 

The nighthawks fail to sink a claw through the surface of flesh 

But the ravens await to serve the feasts above in their nests 

-Luke 22:47-53 – 1 Kings 17-
