The Messiah

Take an oath to fuel the hearts around you

Write a story about the days past

Where men’s lives were taken and the bereaved left to cry

A sloppy beginning takes reign and starts a new era

Of placated sheep, marching to the beat of their hearts


Words string together in incoherent babble

Only those capable of seeing beneath the line

Will find the hidden chains of a past brought to present

Fulfilling the capacity of the human mind

Is a thought only they can understand


We are forsaken


As a match lights, the line will burn

And their eyes will open

They will see that it is written in blood


Fearing the final words that will carry on and ignite the flame

The sheep will fall and play dead

Not realizing they have fallen into the flame of the line, brightening the blaze

A blackened heart rests with them,

Thumping arrhythmically to the chants of "yes we can”

The life of the sheep draining to give it strength


We are embalmed


"Awaken and hearken to me my children

For the next travesty shall take place beneath tent three.

Please make your way to the rear and wait silently until you are called.”


They smile graciously, the show is about to begin.

"Ladies and gentlemen, keep your eyes peeled for a rare delight.

A special new animal is making its first appearance tonight

And you wouldn’t want to miss it.”

A false smile reveals the secret as the show begins


A bloodstained curtain


The crowd cheers as the ordinary performance stretches on

A few faces filled with doubt but applauding to keep peace

The red-stained drape is dropped from the cage as the beast is thrown in circles

Snarling, he greets his fans with an amorous laugh

Constantly crying out that he can make his way free






















They release the beast and watch as he walks in a circle

Enticing the crowd with a forgiven glare of steely premise

"Please do not be alarmed for I am not harmful”

A tongue carefully reveals the fangs of yesterday behind a gleamish smile

The crowd looked on in awe as the beast turned, his voice beaming with pride

The beast digs his fangs deep into the shoulders of the spectators


No cries are heard


The bloodstained curtain is carefully drawn closed

Soaked in the fresh blood of all who was present

"Thank you all for coming tonight. We really hope you enjoyed the show.”

A smile befitting such fallacy plays on the wind

Dance the "final dance" in the never-ending night...
