Dust clouds of pain bring bruising rains
crumbling rocks mock human form
Kneeling in searing sands
shackled to shadows
a captive awaits his fate
in damning soundlessness
Emptiness silences the land -
earth to earth

A face hides behind a cloak of faith
Donned in death he waits
Whets his blade on a stone of despair
his executioner's knife brandished and bare
Shining off Apollo's heartless glare
a thread of life tightened and taut
Morta's shears
ashes to ashes

Hate has gone viral
Executions routine
Cage burning and beheadings
feed the media machine
Virtue gutted and morals disemboweled
Viscera dripping from the hound of hell's jowls -
dust to dust

In the name of god hypocrisy
Heaven hangs his head in shame
the Moon has only herself to blame -
earth to earth

Ethical drought dust dunes in doubt
Copper cold and bullets bold
Bones and stones blades and rage
Soldiers undone by a manic sun
Crumbling rocks mock
distraught faces of clay
Dead men walking -
dust to dust
ashes to earth
earth to dust
