The totem

The totem

A Poem by taranum

The victim was slain and the oppressor glorified
Alas! Crimes of humongous magnitude personified,
And believed by the collective to be the right acts!
The victims' bodies thrown into a well of crawling insects!
The vultures were never hungry, sabotaging the bodies,
And with that thousands of emotional rhapsody.

As the victims were destroyed by the dastardly oppressors
The latter's totem glorified in wondrous colors.
That inanimate object had come to life
With the breaths of its living lies!
It's grotesque features gave power to its disciples to commit more crimes
And their language devoid of any emotions made the victims' cries go unheard in dry climes.
