land of blood

crack the whip
crack the unforgiving
whip

slapping down on
hunched backs 

walk and walk,

blood leaves the 
flesh.

fresh wounds met by no
muse 
the trail is cosmic 
the end is none

crack the whip 
crack the bones 
of the slaves 

callous hands 
being swallowed by
virgin mouths 

land is not
pure, nor
furtile 

all blood 
seeps through 
killing the root
