one smoldering mind
immolated a continent
blackened the skies of
the world evermore
stained the skin of
complicit humanity
marking each man
then alive and born since
all his children and
those yet to follow
through all that remains
of this bleak haunted
age of our kind
we depraved and
conveniently blind
marking every last wretch
of us sons of Cain all
with indelible guilt
for the numbers
the numbers
oh God damn us all
with regret of creation
lamenting the numbers
the numbers
the skin and bone
atavist shock of
those numbers
