DEFEATED WARRIORS

94bcdd72-47f2-4b7c-bc62-c2b8f52aca5a

Chanting the victorious
war songs from afar
our warriors are back
home
all covered with the
blood of neighboring enemies
they never disappoint us.

Their victorious medals
stand not the best of time
our household is crippled
foundation built upon gasps
cracks run through the mind
of our fence.
Peace, now a story in the Genesis.

Our warriors are back home
but like a breathing-startle,
leprosy sucks into their
veins,helpless…….

Our warriors,
helping hands to the
neighbors but leprous
at home…..
Our warriors are back home.
