Cardinal Silence

There is a canary with no song tonight, a poet with no sight. A dry ink jar and some memories guarded by a cardinal silence. A night star shines in the night been there for eternity. Mighty river runs through the land been tracing footsteps of time. Sky is blue and sky is red embers burnig in my head. Earthquakes shake and bombs incinerate war torn souls dream in bloody nightmares. Cardinal silence whispers of mankinds fall. Someone stop the silence before it is too late.
