For A Modern Leadership


For A Modern Leadership

the kingdom within has fallen from royal ascendancy
into the weathered walls of obscurity
leaving behind empty shells
with no crown that is fitting
leaving behind the legacy
of torment
of mistrust
of perpetual
war
for the sake
of war
all the time
war
     as
the only purpose
seems to be avoiding
peace
at all costs
     as
these costs
have risen now
higher than any prophecy
that could have ever been foretold
in any lost integrity that still might fly above the fray
nothing more than a winged accountant of record
memorizing every last prayer of the collateral dead
as the words ooze across their cracked and forsaken lips
prayers forgotten as soon as they are never answered
