Mold of  a Merciless Hand

I.

To make a mold of a merciless hand

who moves through generations like a flood

an aggression that travels in the blood

the violence of recently lit firebrand.

A war with Mother Nature is not won

with atomic superiority

a deadly act of authority

the constant wind and rain has us undone.

The colors of our minds dusty yellow

as the dove flies over the Mulberry

we release feathers for the wind that blows.

Our violence becomes our bedfellow

no longer peaceful home sanctuary

just space for death and time to decompose.

II.

A hidden anger in our hearts move world

our thoughts upon our victims not lovers

a time when happiness undiscovered

lies under iron fist alone and gnarled.

A heretic started the fire not witch

those times in human history when blood

would wash each corpse and carcass down a flood

of rhetoric that’s read from foxhole ditch.

Powerful spirits instruct flying kites

the wolves feel sudden pity for their prey

so lost in thoughts of war we cannot see.

When pain arrives upon the tail of nights

our humanity quickly pushed away

we do not listen to our hearts own plea.

III.

Bribed by a boundless tongue that beats and baits

to lash and whip before the words entrap

these brutal cracks draw fresh maps on skull cap

so many fists stay clenched to seal their fates.

A generations trauma pushes script

to move the strong towards a violent end

an open festered wound that will not mend

the scales of justice prefer to be tipped.

This is affirmation of man’s anger

reflected off a child’s watery eye

a blood red x to make a brand new day

Whomever swings the mightiest hammer

or shows their strength by forcing a reply

with whip or staff for those who disobey.
