I tender the ground so hard and dry

To ensure I grow the best possible

Seething hatred before I wither and die

*

The seeds I sow are created from pain

The kind that makes you soul bleed

And the blows of a fist over and over again

*

The nourishment they thrive upon

Are the salted tears of sorrow and despair

Hastily collected before they are gone

*

My fertiliser of choice not for the faint of heart

And the shit that I spread from the decaying dead

Give my unholy seeds, the best possible start.

*

So I tender the ground with tools made of bone

As I while away the centuries and beyond

With no-one else to care for, but myself alone

*

I care for my seeds like a father doth his spawn

To help them along and nurture and grow

With the ultimate glory for them to be born

*

So with tears and faeces I tend to my young

Talking all the time to them of the lives ahead

Their hurt and betrayal not yet even begun

*

So I watch as my hatred grows to wondrous heights

Seeing the potential they now have to offer

And my thoughts drift off to imagine the delights

*

I bid my children goodbye, with a blood red tear

As they go into the world to spread unrest

And a large proportion of unbridled Fear!
