Pain and Peasants

By Chance

Vitality spilled upon the threshing floor
Reduce to sanguine stain
Oppressors galavant and gaudy
Bathe in crimson rain

Beasts with horn rejoice
Burn the meek to black
Hordes of darkness commune
Break the bones 
Maw the fat

Locust take flight 
And find new stead
Amongst the air of living
En route to blacken the fibers of light
Unknown to the soon be dead
