Night and Fog

Night and fog descend
About those peaceful eyes
Mind clouded, visage hidden
In merciless blindness
Be gone that feigned piety
And make that hating smoke
It billows towards the sky
And proclaims humanity
Corrupted air in which
He draws frustrated breaths
Made tasteless by empowerment
In ghoulish dreams
And wicked worlds
Where night and fog descend

Drowned in darkness, designed isolation
Icy knives assault my back
Descending to the iron floor

Where like soldier ants they march
Towards some home-called, destined hole
Bearing up upon their backs
Discarded filfth and aged happiness
Purged of being and
Such existence drained
A man stands taller
To face the same assaults
So that he might drown himself again

Running where they won't dare not
Until bereft
Of locomotion
