I cried

as I watched the people's minds unfold

telling the story I'd never want to be told

I smelled blood on the hands of gods

as the ascension to Parthenon began

How did it come to this?

How did we come to this? 


I cried even more

as the cherubim blew the horn

announcing the pardoning

of criminals, thieves, and liars

who neither repented nor recanted

But we still bow down

and called it "Zeus's Will"


I cried

as the numbers flashed before my eyes

Demons partied in glorious lies

Victory is theirs at last

I watched 

as the flames of Hades burst before my eyes

50 million people heading to their own demise

Why did we come to this?

Why did it come to this? 


Hope has fled the horizon

Frail, beaten up and abandoned

The dark days are here

We will now only know the Face of Fear
