We live in a blessed age
where monsters are god and god a monster
to teach us the small surrenders
where we battle
When god is Love
Merciful and Compassionate
omnivorous insects that we are,
eat hate for bread and mate with death.
From monsters sometimes
The inspiration for this poem is drawn from past and current events.
