Vicious Cycles (Poetry)

Artwork by: Brittany Jackson

Gather all of the banks... baptize them with fire
Let it symbolize impermanence
Let it burn imaginary value
Let the ashes fertilize the trees from which they came

Gather all of the churches... flood them with the ashes
Label it as an offering to the God within
Sacrificing the addictive bondage
Let the root of all evil reign no more

No more greed... no more profit

Curing the symptoms of the satanic sickness
Symptoms to reappear with different faces and names
Different faces playing the same games

Attempts to quicken evolution are futile
Including this piece I construct for my pupils

-Jon Chambers
