Read Poem: Silence of the Lambs, by Douglas Brayton II

Here I am Here I am
Dark as night insides saintly snow white
The blight the blight
Shake the innards this Wizard of Oz and said cause
Tearing eyes dangling jaws
A tiger strikes feel the claws
Puppies fright kitten paws
It gnaws it gnaws
Empty the precious Lambs
My eyes the fire my words the saw
The Law the Law
Insideous these aches tremors and quakes
This lake it takes a fire douses evil desires
Mired Mired
Tempted the empty in darkness he kept me
How long must this go on..?
This frightened night this sinners dawn
Cheats repeat and seek a pawn
He is gone He is gone
Confess to messing
The invisible invincible goes on and on
He knows your weakness your desires to defeat the meekest
So Wrong so Wrong
Tigers eyes now chastise the ignorant non wise
Then turns black these skies
The Truth the Truth
The jackal is dancing the goat and hoof
A cloven one has stolen one
The mildest of the violent in creeps the silence
Mightiest of men now run riot
I am I am
A ray of light day turns to night
Luminous this human has fallen from greatest of heights
Now delivered as the Lamb stands quivered
Lips spit violence as violins play silent
Here I am here I am
The tempted now redempted blasphemous now emptied
You know who I am You know who I am
Cries said by the Silence of the Lambs
