#273 (numb)


snuffed out

too soon

echoeing blasts in

empty corridors

sweat and tears

no exit near

unbelievable loss yet

we go numb

from the repeating cycle

or fake mourning

and fake prayer

and fake compassion

no exit near

heavy armed guards

shoot to kill

but the answer to a bullet

never was more bullets

no prayers

no mourning

no compassion

lead tearing through

flesh and bones

and cartillage

nothing sacred

nothing blessed

the sound of terror

drowning in

the global feeds

we are
