Souls of Dead Children

Written by Elwood Jake:

Look softly, oblique, objurgation
questions for dead children?

We sent them on a quest
ourselves not to deny
to quell the thirst
fouling soils
far and distant
might makes right

In the hearts of objurgate
which is that child
standing before
the mirror of your soul

Dare not to stare?

You foulest of beasts
that sends the souls dead children lie
in screaming, silent
killing fields
where hard rains
fill the scabs
left by cut hate and divide
on the cheeks in the eyes
of the souls
in killing fields
holding the souls
of dead children


In honor of all who served

Today is Veteran's Day and I wish to thank all who have served and those currently serving.
