What happened
how did you come to this
did no one ever love you

A child born into chaos
raised in a culture of hate
read only one book

Bestial faced clerics
spewing twisted words
that no prophet would sanction

Fed on a diet of loathing
for places and people
they will never know

Hidden behind
blacker than blackest veils
belts and vests assembled to kill

What paradise do you think awaits
when you’re in pieces
and drenched in blood
