Night shadow has consumed the land
The world's torch lies cold and broken
Humanity stood but couldn't stand
before a race that affronted them.
Of parliament and white house of cards
no soul nor fragment yet remains
Sad we few, broken, tired
Struggle for cover and away from madness.
The dawns today are shattered glass
torched atmosphere seared lungs
Rot is the new red at best
Foggy-eyed society hasn't worry one.
Not a rebel left still freedom fights
for the gains have left us all
Cower hidden lonesome righteous
Bravery masks are useless and hollow.
The face that smiled at our doom
Was not at all unlike our own
Simple eyes and brow, and groomed
Handshakes and smiles never slow.
If time could twist to send back warning
To those that led us here today
God help us! stay your angry arms
Sick mirrors hold your enemy.
