Final Take

It comes
encroaching 
moving faster
roaring
devouring 
acres
forest
lives
no one is protected
no one matters
all for one 
one for all
a thing of the past.
Disheartened
weary
strangled 
brought to knees 
promised warrior
a millennium
walking
waking
destruction
war
sin
all rolled over 
there is nothing
left to see.
A challenge 
not uttered 
taken
more to come
more harm
more destruction
vile men
tasked with protection
raping.
Watching
caravan after caravan
flee
safety 
somewhere
out there
hope is held.
Turn 
one last time
tired
so tired
last stand
last bastion
Last Warrior 
for this life.

Snake Oil

Dancing with the devil
razor’s edge
rabid eyes
fires rage
slobbering
desperate desire
promises made
acquiesced 
time to conquer
time to rape
lands
life
animals
lips revel
nattered teeth
bleached
blanked
yanked
garish delight
torture many
for your sickness
sated only 
with death of your enemies
slaughtered by Captain Taint.
Whispers upon the wind
change is coming
death is nigh
not for common man
head down
blown 
beaten
upon golden dais
god like reign
blasphemous
thunder roars
lightening strikes
desperation coils
stench in air
done for
run and hide
time has come
for new tides.
