2008 -- 1.1 (Fall) Poetry


By Jennifer Williams 

Cruel truth of human mind
Graciously in shadows
Spilling blood of mankind
A howl from below
Savage beasts are free to feed
A lustful feast
Until one will succeed
This play of death has never ceased
The cruel course of controversy
Such a sad soirée
What of the cradling arms of mercy?
These beasts whose callous Fray
Is pointless in the end
For all the bitter dropping tears
With more left to lend
And nigh to silence our fears
