    I have been to paradise

    It was so serene.

    A place of warm sunshine

    And free will.

    I watched fire consume

    This place,

    As we were herded away.

    Today I saw the jackals

    Rend the doves.

    I followed the blood

    To a division,

    Where the cracked bell

    Stood symbolic

    Of our raped mother.

    Our abusive step-father,

    Human nature,

    Sells us out like whores.

    Most submit,

    Giving the ten percent.

    Letting capital

    Determine who is royalty.

    In the eyes of people,

    Stares insanity.

    Their mindless dirge

    Of submission,

    Hangs heavy in the air.

    Always needing

    Never willing to give.

    I ask which are you,

    Jackal or dove?

    Are you imprisoned

    In the city?

    Living in constant strife.

    Or are you

    The one who sells death?

    The doves will soon fly as one.

    Evolution finally realized.

    They will join within the sun,

    To bring the jackals demise.
