09. As We Look On

Passengers
by Artifex Pereo



 

Hail the sinking boat. Surrender hope of vessels stout & guaranteed to float. The sea will sway. But rummaged rock is all thatís left of home. Satiate with waves or hide & wait to explode when Godís of every faith canít fit in one sky. Stay, itís comfortable. Work against the state and youíll find pain. The miracle faded when you tried to climb out. Aim with your satellites. Stay safe while our race expires. Claim stake when youíre obliged. Save face and fire in the night. As we look on, helplessly veiled with shock, life still goes on, desensitized with suffocating denial. Weíve cauterized wounds inflicted by alienation of those beyond our sight. Denaturalized, the displaced provide asylum for our careless privileged kind. Counting shells until sleep. Afraid to dream & believe that the initiative lost. Children know the difference between rockets & sounds of the dud barrel bombs. Surrendered is pure adolescence. Childhoods are robbed. Pounded into the streets, still holding out for relief thatís proven to be far off. Slay the barbarous. With the will of God weíll kill them all. A meaningless death is not what we had sought out. Aim with your satellites. Stay safe while our race expires. Claim stake when youíre obliged. Save face and fire in the night. As we look on, helplessly veiled with shock, life still goes on, desensitized with suffocating denial.
