Flashing rays
Thunderous sound
Fire encases melting heat
Shrapnel ignominiously
Dance through innocent flesh
That crawls out of one’s skin
The roar of the explosion
Dries every tear
Screams pollute, deafening ears
Live audience
In an unprecedented
Death Opera

The sound of fury
Orchestrated by an unseen martyr
Believed to be
Next of kin
Of the Devil
Foe of God

Wow what a burdened man this was whom Sorrow named his friend... with no solution nor recourse. What an amazing imaginative classic sterling! !
