The Mystery 

A child’s smile

The lover’s kiss 

Tragic loss

Momentary bliss 

To feel Is to Be 

All the striving

For what? 

You’re elemental Watson

Yet Sherlock if you must 

Ashes to ashes

All you erect 

Blood soaked dust

Fenced erections 

Monuments of Barbarity

Feeding addictions  

Golden calves disguised as vengeful

Gods Excusing self-responsibility for dogmas of greed’s vision 

Justifications of violence rationalized with immediacy of purpose

Screaming to the cosmos for deliverance 

From whom?
