Blood Sacrifice

“Brass eternal slave to mortal rage” (WS) – Gettysburg, PA – Photo by gfs

The innocents of man
Sons and daughters
of virgin mothers
Taught the way of war
Pour their blood out
on wheat fields and cotton
to a jealous god
whose mighty sword
beaten from plowshares
left its farrow in their hearts
as tears fell for the fallen
When true believers
took up their truth
to their ruin
