Abandoned Deserters

Old honor

Held in the den of thieves

Dark deeds overshadow

Dark thoughts in the cage


No mercy found

For breakers of the code

There is no clemency

In the lion cage


No one their own

When robbed of autonomy

Wresting control

With measures of violence or economy


Reticent in solitude

Internal screams for purgation

Searching for salvation

While mired in damnation


Hidden from sight

Faded from memory

Hoarse cries for absolution

From the abandoned deserter
