Light / Darkness

Teeth bared, fists clenched,
the faithful congregate
to crucify, assassinate.

This crime cannot go unpunished.
He shed the light of truth
and asked people to change.

An ageless cry of blind rage
erupts from the mouths
of the righteous.

Bullets fly. Nails pierce.
Swords rend asunder.

In every age it is the same.
Light is mistaken for darkness.
Innocent die at the hands
of the incumbents.
