Withered flesh seeks to take from corpse . . .

What glimstick can substitute for the soft glow of the soul . . .

Lanterns raised in tribute to one who walks among the dead . . .

Statues broken and left scattered across the ground . . .

Temples left unattended.

 

Thieves slip through the night pilfering empty holes . . .

Ravens cry and the maggots lurch in unceremonious offerings . . .

The wise scorn while society crumbles in upon itself . . .

Mad men cry while they strive to build ruins on top of ruins . . .

What should die is reanimated.
