Gaunt with phantasms of wealth and power.
Moralized in their rage to kneel and scrape
Beneath skies weeping sanguine iniquity
On amber waves atop pain-soaked soil.
Another age manifest of destiny,
Balancing acts of divide and conquer.
Western pogroms and urban cleansings spread
Contagious blankets among the witless.
Weighted chains constrict, like inescapable
Pasts laying within unnoticed mass graves.
Beyond white pickets and street corner lots,
Through shining glass confections of twisted
Truths too depraved for public consumption,
Lie nameless realms encased in the laws of czars
Who know nothing of humanity’s worth.
