That Skin looks Burgered

Enter the crowd
spawning shapes upon the dead 
A skill honed by understanding the living
a task only desired by the dregs

Mind the sirens as they sing a call
A call that was called while calling for the end of the world

Saturation through destruction
so on and not so far forth passed an intellect drawn on a caveman’s wall

The breathing here will stall

It will become tough to take in 
exactly what is seen
Deep under here beneath 

Seeped earth unturned for a kernel of thought
Barely tapping the surface
here for a purpose
deemed utterly worthless 

Those are that thing’s eyes that judge us
they called him God once before
No one said he’d be so bright
patternless and misinformed

There were good men
who drug their brothers to the sand
there were bad men
who taught us to take a stand
to be strong
to balance the planets on an axis of hatred
tipping towards the grand

No pity from a man free of inhibitions
no apologies from the cutthroat crowd
Take the hat as the captain of awkward situations
a soaring laughter erupts from the crowd

The crowd will always give chase

a duty bestowed 
a beauty-less rose
a useless pose

The crowd had a head start

The crowd takes affect 
This was written ingest
The crowd now infests
The crowd always infests
