O Anointed One - where is the nobility ,
the sanctity ,nay , the glory of your Crusade ?
In the name of your God,
the mightest yet in the annals of Man-
have unleashed the horrors of Armageddon,
on a people so utterly defenceless and forsaken.
Your monstrous leviathans crush
and grind into the dust
all that lies in their path -
ravaging , despoiling
and laying waste an ancient land..
Your paladins ,soaring the skies above,
whoop through chandelles
and whirl through Immelmans,
as the missiles they fire strike home,
blasting cities , towns …little hamlets
reducing all to cinder and shards.
Carnage :savage and brutal -
horrific, beyond measure-
has been wreaked on
the aged and the infirm and the innocent
Bodies ,in their thousands,
lie strewn all over the land .
Their life blood -
gushing forth in cataracts,
surging over in torrents-
steeps the blasted earth ….
to its very core.
Each drop of oil,
O Anointed One,
that your Empire drains out,
shall henceforth be forever stained
with the blood of glorious martyrs.
…..In His Infinite Compassion
The Christ murmurs to the broken bodies
of the hundred thousand innocents ,
lying limp and lifeless
at the foot of His Cross-
“ …this night you shall be with me
