BURNT OFFERING

Amado L. Picardal

 

 

 

The smoke and stench

rise like incense from the ground

strewn with burnt and butchered flesh.

 

 

How insatiable these gods are

demanding more flesh, more blood

in order to impose or maintain

their contending schemes of paradise.

 

 

On this vast altar

the bones and skulls pile up

to be made the foundation

of infernal kingdoms and empires.
