Blackened of heart, they, who speculate the placing of souls to different grace?
Taken of the depressed, their preyed upon, is the lost in faith
Such are the treacherous ways that allow the conscious all
These ingratiated plethora of human embrace
Children of the world’s misery fits well to this company’s taste
As the story goes…
At the time, they had seen life as do snow fences that have no use for the summer
From atop a lonesome hill, two separate lives which, had now sidled of separate stance of an open ended fence overlooking equal metaphor plane
Tormented souls and weathered pickets
Sworn not to a memory’s same moral ticket
Yet, of same judgment of existence to steep
It is their winter’s content to stand or fall, as empty winds blow past and side,
sounding of howls thru and thru for the cold, cold company that will - they forever keep
