the healers touch

no one here is ever whole

not a single malevolent soul

and tho we are cursed with war and pain

we bow before them without shame

and proudly ship our babies out

as tho we never have a doubt

that god is fighting on our side

willing our enemies genocide

and lest our foes take all the blame

we hurt our loved ones just the same

hurling words like hand grenades

marveling at the way love fades

with each and every passing day

our rusting halos will betray

all our empty promising

while we twist and mangle everything

a broken world before us waits

the healers touch our scorn negates

while shaking our fists at the sky

blaming the god we crucified
