Here lies the shell of broken peace, a misshapen mirage, home to the least

Of those cast off from heaven’s gates, who chase their sins, and seal their fates

 

Here rest the hearts, smothered by hate, choked with despair, and loved too late

These are the ones, all forced to wait, for cold damnation to dissipate

 

There stands the prison, of heartless ambition, beholden to men, who took on the mission

Of further staining the blood washed flag, and driving the world so foolishly mad

 

These are the graves of miserly knaves, beaten by greed, besieged by slaves

Therein they burn with lusts for gold, of which their hands may never hold

 

This is the pit which lies beneath, to trap the fools with hasty feet, running ever swift to meet the doom which they all long to cheat

 

Here is the place to which they fall, the ruin of them each and all

The place of every sinful bird, shot down to hell, and never heard
