Limited Shelf Life

Contemporary hunters wielding 21st century weapons of influence Firing indiscreetly upon blindfolded hostages that double as their clients Mutilating their customer case before gutting them with ease once they're expendable Feasting upon the impoverished entrails until there is not a shred of identifiable human flesh Disturbingly convenient as it is prevalent Once the remains cannot be recognized as human, there is no chance, not even a miniscule possibily, of retribution There is no face and no conscious voice to demand justice for countless grievances The corpses sink into the Earth where they are subjected to further degradation Posthumously polluted with the toxicity emanating from murderous mouths
