Human! Human!

Screaming ~ Philip Brent Harris

~~~~~

Human! Human! spurning right

Will you vanish in the night?

When mortal weapon, hand or spree

Shall end thee for eternity.

Not so distant wait the flies

To watch the fire leave your eyes.

On what fell wings do they descend

Your flesh and sinew then to rend?

And you molder and depart

As nature lays waste your heart.

And when thy heart shall cease to beat

No tear shed mourns thee, repeat.

What the hammer? What the chain?

Felled trees so cover’s sought in vain?

What the building, what the rasp

Dare spell your story’s end at last?

When the stars fall from their spheres

They’ll fill the darkness with their tears.

Who will frown your plight to see?

No lamb e’er existed to remake thee.

Human! Human! spurning right

Will you vanish in the night?

When mortal weapon, hand or spree

Shall end thee for eternity.
