Sky melds mortal skin 

Mediates metaphysics 

Trials known and unknown

 

Entitlement rules

Intuitive tenant, doomed

Bars fence existence 

 

Children watch, listen

Dictums stain wonder’s magic

Hearts of gold grow cold

 

We face genocide 

Consent manufactures tools

Rules hidden terrors

 

Corona virus

Divides many tongues rats ride

Year of vermin spreads

 

They say one of three 

Will contract Cancer today 

Describe evidence 

 

Can you play leap frog?

Water getting hotter now

Where you gonna jump?
