If gold is your god
then tears mix your blood

A chalice spilled
where tanks run rampant

Discernment lost in the trenches
sardine and cracker sandwich

If war is your truth
then spit shines your guns

A blast echoes the night
as stomachs grumble pleas

Damnation hollows the vessel
flesh and spirit juncture
