Fresh blood

The fresh blood is on the dusty
ground and the young lambs have
been slain, taken without mercy
through the hands of those who
claim to have special knowledge
that others have not yet gained.

The blood is on the ground, and so
in the name of he-who-is-everlasting
life is taken because of a schismatic
view of the world driven by the dangerous
rhetoric of end-times and the caustic
power of judgement to fall with anger
on all those souls who have not seen
the light that is only given to a few.
