Burn Athens Burn - 2011/06/29

Nondescript places scream
Long lost to the extremes
Meaningless votes tallied
As government hovels burn
Youthful street relegated
To distant eroding memory
Antiques of old so remain
Even as the rest crumbles

The police become victims
While the populace fights
Gunned down in the street
As a dying world pretends
The death is at a trickle
So threatening to elevate
Cabbage will be traded in
For weapons of darker sin

Using fire to fight flame
Only heightens an inferno
Until a sacrifice emerges
Our question is what dies
I know while Athens burns
Pitiful people will fight
Vowing never to go gently
Into a vast eternal night
