Wasted, Not Rested

Vain pleas, rended homes,
Mangled bodies, up in flames!
Wasted fleshes, unrested souls.

Vacant faces, grief-stricken faces,
We look on: swiftly ended races!
Lives like ours, hours before.

Gleeful, the monster bays,
Dares justice to raise its tail
Dares justice to raise its tail
