The Cursed

By Ctalj

One by one they led them there.
All from rows of three.
Towards the place of certain death.
Extermination of the free.

Cackling spirits upon grounds forged by fire.
The children bled in shackles.
The smoke did rise from bodies of death.
Devils laughed as they won their battles.

One by one they led them there.
Children without a future.
Into flame where bone did melt.
And into the jaws of a devilish creature.
