Last Orders



for country and god
for kingdom and queen

feeding the fodder
with once on a dream

ideal illusions
of under the sun

eased adaptation
of what have been won

raise me a banner
and dig me a trench

for somebody's folly
please wallow in stench

of blood and despair
for a notion abstract

wielded through words
through a gun
shooting fact

fall at my feet
fall on your swords

words fall
like hammer blown
dissonant chords

caught in an echo
and fading as fast

in the end
only orders
