Brittle And Broken

A walking corpse, brittle and broken,
Eyes sunken, hollow, body skeletal, angular,
Ribs sticking out, like swords against the flesh,
A human losing the will to live,

A siren wailing in the dead of night,
A murdered child at the hands of a demon,
A war with hunger never beaten,
Sad and lonely, hope was eaten,

Malnutrition, starving for kindness,
The whole world dying of self-inflicted blindness,
Poison spewing from crazed cracked lips,
Creating deluded self-images, skeletal ribs.
