Tread carefully…


Empty stage
Absent crowd
Suffocating silence
All around

No orchestra
Or notes to play
Bodies and strings
Left to decay

Felt seats
No longer felt
Too close
For comfort
In the most
Peculiar place

Gone is culture
Gone is faith
Gone are the days
We used to crave

All is barren
All Is lost
On his throne
Of bones
Death counts
The cost

Untold tales
Unheard fears
Isolated
Segregated
Weeping
Torrential tears

Woe is us
Forsaken folk
Life truly
Is a joke

Truly
Practically
Hysterically
Illogically
Accidentally
Incidentally
Intentionally
Irrationally

Life’s stage
Is crowded
Significant sounds
Will abound
