Musical statues (senyru)

as innocent lives
lay bleeding out on the ground
God receives their souls

each
gulp
flows
into the
next one,

emptying now,

like my chances;

every opportunity

to reinvent myself,

pissed away, down

the drain of dreams.

    Michael,

    I have to be honest and say I completely missed this when posted. However, there's not much more for me to add than has already been covered. Typically, you have said all that needs saying succinctly and cuttingly indeed.

    Take care and all the very best as ever,

    Ben
