Placebo

byjavawarrior©

The strongest man in the world
Knelt before the red curtain
And prayed

His salvation veiled behind
Bloodstained sheets like grape-skin

Fatal fig
Empty tomb
Cindered city

The history of mankind
Beyond the falling red cloak

Revealed!

A tear of blue flame falls fast
And glows dim in the mirror's frame
