Victory Of Fall


One unthinkably hostile debate
started in a Colosseum:
a path to kill the clemency.
A comatose truth was listening to lies.

They were sportingly arguing about
the nukes option to bring about the peace
and prosperity on the strife torn earth.
Total annihilation will initiate a new world.

Troubled times; the failure of sacramental thread
to tie the god. The king presides over
the sweaty palms which failed the swords.
Deprivation will breed the contempt for theater.

Horses were ready to disobey the order.
Shoes were thrown on altar.
The eyes were everywhere in the wounds, stained
with guilt, never to celebrate the victory.
