Thieves tread in caution sheathed by

 

The silence echoing through the night

Hungry to rape the pockets of poor men

 

 

To nourish their bank accounts with avarice

 

 

Eyes widened in shock

 

As not a shade of value

Graced their empty palms

Helplessly blinded by adrenaline

 

A shaded unit of knuckles parked

Directly into the tender skin

Of the eyes of the poor men

Connecting squarely with the bone

 

Lying beneath the caressing flesh

Reality gradually sinking into oblivion

As to their kneecaps they unceremoniously fell

Repeatedly the innocence had been taken

 

As with the execution of every new punch

And every new kick, Skins were being bruised,

Bones were being shattered, and hearts were

Being scarred with unwanted tragedy

 

A burden unbearable to most hearts

Of which were characterized by scorn

As well as marked by unresolved wars

Of a ceaseless chain of conviction
