Bellies protruded out,
A lithograph in blood
Below the waist,
Fatal consummation

Forged passes and ports
A Promised Land
boomeranged,
Ethnicity crying foul.

One dark finger and one plea
Commissioned gun shots
One shriek became the
shrine of evanescence.

Boyish charm,rugged cheeks
Symbolic at eighteen
warrior temperaments and
The Promised Land revealed

Night time disturbance
Day time defiance
Your chance, my demand
At last, a failed misery

The streets are gallows
Lofty with dead swallows
A dark landslide
Where chastened doves brood.
