PLAGUES OF RETRIBUTION
(eight questions)

 

Where’s the bloody mark
password for salvation
who chosen for what
who the pharohs now?

Who mixing concrete and sweat
build the towers of hubris
who reaping booty proclaim
ours not yours! me not us!

Who wandering days and nights
seek refuge cruel oppression
who seeing themselves cry
where’s the manna now?
