Die

By Davis Agagi

Full of colorless blood
Like a trained hawk
Tearing off flesh of squalling kids
Leaving jagged edges smiling
Crimean War, the incubus happiness.

Assassins like neonates
small, weakened with education
A hatful of many-
Suckling a chicken-breasted mother
Like the innocent in hands of manslayer
Resonating for Feast of Unleavened Bread

Welcome,
Undress them with penal servitude
Have a shower of ignominy till clean
Like face of a youthful Saint Bridget
Crush them in moving cogwheels
Give them one of their quietus
You deserve this
Die.
