This corrupted Tower of Babel…
Losing our indigenous values…
Selling souls for specks of black gravel…
This never ending battle between the so called righteous…
And the spiteless…
The poor rich parables that paint…
These scales of societies…
Balance the weight…
Geomancy…

Divinate from past ways…
But time flows one way…
So continual change…
But who or what should I believe…
The words of this…
Soaked in red earthen…
Burned surface…
Left behind by past lives…
Whose demise I had a part in my life…

Wiped away from the pages of history…
Make me wish I didn’t read…
Their miseries…
But no images…
Just words…
Misunderstood…
Happy that I don’t understand…
As I tip the scales towards their plan…
To ignore the pains…
As we scar this landscape…
