INHUMANE Demons are a myth They say, But deep down In a man’s heart they lay. A heart pervaded By darkness, The face of cruelty It will caress. Their eyes are blinded By hatred, And their rabid thoughts Which they presume are sacred. Humanity is consumed By tenebrosity And man thrives In sin city. A crack in the abhorrent facade Is all it takes, For humanity to bask In its former glory days.
