While you were singing

and hoping for a better world

thinking through your songs of hope

somewhere, somehow remorse would

spark in the heart of evil.

A serpent knows nothing about barking.

 

The good word says, “there is nothing new under the sun.”

You saw the constancy of times

but you were to busy entertaining the masters in the big house with your fiddles…hey now!

You see, somewhere, somehow, through your art,

remorse would  spark in the heart of evil.

A dog knows nothing  about roaring.

 

They told you not to eat from the crops

it could give you indigestion and cause you to die.

yet, you died from providing the harvest.

Now they sell it at the stores while many, like you, are awaiting their sentences

from the shackles.

You see, somewhere, somehow, through your obedience

remorse would  spark in the heart of evil.

A fish knows nothing about flying.

 

We have fallen in a region of space having a gravitational field so intense

that no matter or radiation can escape.

We died while shouting our saving grace.

You see, somewhere, somehow, through repetition

remorse would  spark in the heart of evil.

Hate knows nothing about love, because it can only hate.

M.Silva
