Washed Away



their importance fades
washed away
sand castles humble
before the wave
their formations
mud puddles
sink holes
rubble
nature the artist
the liberator
water making rocks smooth
round
sculpted
left out in the sun to bake
cracked with the heat
of time
drips each wet drop
rains
a witness to terror
on a planet removed
for whose amusement
has life been made
bleeding but not dead
hanging
smugness wiped clean
the slate
storms of rage
too late for remorse
the tolling of the bell
freedom for the horse
those kept in a contrived hell
worse than imaginable
humanity obscene
hypocrite mean
washed away
pristine
