For the dead and the discarded

Easy to blame
And hard to understand
Words pour so does tears
When we see your smile
Assembled together

With stubborn cries
Men and women gather
Outraged by the battle of love and hate
on your face;
To think they entertain themselves
taking you apart piece by piece;
To thinkyour blood amuses them…
One eye luminous with love
Another blinded by hate
Crushed crucified discarded
For you we congregate
Yet we can offer
Not fire to extinguish
All that you bore
Nor earth to bury
all that you have borne
