Whence cometh evil?

When good is

Out of practice

When we decry

The beliefs

Of others

When we cease

Empathy, compassion

It flourishes in their absence

When we see good

In only us

In our beliefs


The handmaiden of evil

O’erwhelms the mind.

Evil oozes


Mortifies the soul

Lepers are we

Innocent yet consumed

Conspiracy is everywhere

And we nowhere.
