Manned in Time (Original Poem)

January 18, 2017

 

 

 

 

 

Written by @linzo

 

Moonlight upon my death, jury of my demise

A cloak adorned by a shadowy silhouette

Stained with remnants of a guilty past

Wrapped in a timeless flicker of time

 

A trumpeting call as proceedings commence

To awaken the sleeping night in men

As the owls play along a sweeping melody

To render a cautionary hand to the cause

 

Judged by duty to that which is conscious

Where rudimentary laws define one’s heart

In ways man has played with the game of time

Trying to tame the untameable

 

In starvation from innocence man ploys

Flagging a dead horse in a feeble attempt

To awaken the kindling light within

In a desperate call for intervention
