I saw life extirpated off the face of the Earth.
I saw it burn.
In the flames I saw it scream like a dying animal,
frantically trying to find its way out.
It's fur singing,
at a heat that's unbearable.
Its desperation leaded to glazed over, wistful eyes.
War has had this land in a death grip
for as long as I can recall,
and the numbed cold fingers that grasp it
Will never let go
I saw it crumble in the bureacracy
of a dysfunctional socialistic society
...a communism gone to the dictators.

running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
