Nation of Violence

The magic show is over

The starlight outed

Giggles quieted

The curtains of red drawn

 

Violence of darkness crawls from the shadows

Creep into ears

Enter into the mouth

Making its way to the heart

 

Broken nails stare up from the ground

Pleading moistened voices vaporize into the air

Words of politeness forsaken

Daily rituals abandoned

 

The magic show is over

The magic outed

Life quieted

The curtains of red drawn
