Lifeless Flag

  Lifeless Flag

  Singing the ballad of joyless
  Parturition, forced out of our tired throats
  When our minds have been lost,
  In the labyrinth of hope
  Our laboured hope
  Smashed to smithereens by the ugly boots,
  Of our professed saviours.
  Why? Should we sing?
  When all heads bowed
  In solidarity with the lifeless flag,
  Fraught with frailty.
  Eyes watershed drown the recital hymnal
  Grabbing the fallen thin line of  tune,
  As we grope inward,
  Searching out for a way forward.
