Temporary Victory


We lease our existence from dream thieves,

who will at any moment take away our breath

when needed or not


Disguising ourselves

as the owners of the boom

of Molotov bombs and close range gun shots


We are crowned victorious, with

red Kool-Aid smiles and

fried chicken smells in our clothes


Yes, the Have-Not’s are now the champions

of a fallen kingdom

of crumbling walls and lost souls


In the blackness of shadows

the repented say prayers

of Heavenly Father forgiveness


So that forever

they remain in His grace

and become a soul surviving Witness
