10 Million Christs














marching cadavers
inconsequential consequences
of another’s lust and greed
stapled medals, a rosary for the cordoned
starving for successful failure

backpack messiahs
blinded by visions of paradise
unwashed feet caked in mud
a warrior psychosis
sold to souls
saladin’s blood
on lionheart’s sword
to bush’s head
on bin laden’s pole

crustacean crusade on overfed donkeys
a jism jihad on blurred video

an olive branch
an oxygen mask
a trident missile attack
purveyors of putrefaction
assinine dumb waiters
drunk on faith
fatah         hamas        hezbollah
idf      scientologist                    taliban christianvoice

how many more christs
until we are all crucified?
