The dead remember him
now he’s joined them.

No more privileged
immunity, no more

night raids and burning
borders for that state

of lies. But what he
built and left behind

still rails at the heavens,
still demands tribute,

marching over broken
lands, merciless pride

his legacy, righteous and
murderous to the end.
