A Genocide

Bullets pouring like rain
upon holy gold
fire upon scripture
five rivers of blood

a mother weeps
a child screams
a father vanishes

villages set ablaze
wiped clean of life
scattered bones and debris
stain cold gray patches
amidst vivid green earth

sisters raped
brothers mangled

of bodies
upon bodies
upon bodies
thrown into canals
flooded by death

corruption trickling down
from the top rung
hiding behind shades of lies
perpetrating a genocide

yet we will forever challenge
the raging darkness
we will not let it settle

ashes, ashes
we won’t fall down
