Forgoing the Crux

Our masterpiece

Frayed ropes raise

The crumbling edifice

This monument of success

 

Illusions are cast

By the shadows of flame

The best of intentions

Tend the biggest mistakes

 

Rich flow the veins of the giant

From which you subsist

 

Stomachs not growling

Neither are wolves

New crusades to find

In the harsh terrain of luxury

 

These promises

Of a larger slice

Brutal injustice

In us not being them

 

Never under the light of the abstract

Always under the light of the concrete

 

Lost in the paradox

Of idealism and reality

Results illuminate

What you wanted in action

 

This was not our intent

Well of course it wasn’t

 

The hunger sets in

Wolves growl again

Devour oneself from within

Righteous sin
