Silence of the Bat

The silence of the Bat The bat is silent, still Awake in the dark, never resists the sun Even on the human's table or becomes auspicious decoration It remains silent ... Humans bestow their own eternal crown Pave a pilgrimage with lies Most beautiful languages are for those in the front Hymns are followed by funeral songs The bat remains silent ... They hang upside down from the cliff Guard the black hole of life Like the clock‘s tickers stop, silent and still But the orgy before the altar continues 2020.2.17
