when everything else fails

They Didn’t Plead for Mercy

unsung words
fly high with birds
in the rising smoke
dies the words they never spoke

crumbling bricks
red dust of deeper hues
burning sticks
blood lust of cruel nature

teeth tore flesh asunder
called for plunder
spears bore wounds
and muffled cries

in name of mercy
truce they never plead
those words they never spoke
in pride they ever had
