Darkness Holds

My soul knows what darkness holds. Politicians, bureaucrats, and gutter rats. Playing lotto with our future. I detest both ends of the mouth. But tonight,  I hear a virgin's cry. From a window of broken sky. Rising from her restful sleep. Holding her hand to her chest, of torn down statues, of Olympia and Mars. Watching the flag burning in the name of insanity. Playing into the devil's hand. My soul knows what the darkness holds.

Interesting interplay of histories but old and new. Poignant at the heart. Thank you for sharing this piece that still leaves me thinking.
