Every Human Heart

Embellished to show your end

You stand without a tree abode

What do you require now?

Your faithful one kneels before you

Cold-hearted goddess that you are


In the days of our forefathers

You took from us countless virgins

To sate your wicked appetite

And leave us impoverished

A disgraced people


When we think of you

Our hearts burn with cold fire

For all the talents you stole

For all the souls that went to the

Grave full of youth


Whom you robbed of the

Freedom to give their all

We spit our abomination on your altar

We despise you

We pilfer from your faithful one


You are no goddess of ours

Where were you when we pleaded clemency?

With empty stomachs

Dumb and bloated from gorging our sacrifices

You refused us help


Where were you when

The king lay ailing, dying, drawing

His last breath from a poisoned arrow

Like a selfish infant

You ate our tears and turned deaf ears


Today the cold blade of

Our hatred rests at the throat of

Your faithful one

His blood our vendetta

Save him now if you can


Or else his blood flows

Like Nwobu* shielded by the

Bulrushes and your head on

A platter of clay as befits you

Princess of the earth.


*Nwobu is a very shaded little brook that runs near my house in the countryside, sometimes impossible to pass due to the many bushes that surround it.
