21st Century Sin Eaters


Toxicity ~ Philip Brent


What’s your sacred talisman?
For today or always? Do
you believe it will it keep
you safe from harm? Is
it a thing, a being you
hold close io your heart?
This luck may make you
rich or leave you forlorn.

Like, everything, luck has
two sides, as duel faces.
There is always the good
and the bad. The greedy
rich use the poor folk like
sin eaters to consume all
the misfortune and pain
the rich caused and fear.

Until one day the torrid
suns burns too hot and
potable water vanishes.
While the water rise to
consume cities, coasts.
Friable walls rise ever
higher. Their darkness
overshadows, murders

the sun and the children
it helps prosper and grow.
When there’s nothing left it
will not matter who you were,
what you had before. While
the greedy finally reap and
consume all of the sin they
spewed upon the world. The poor
will rise into the warmth of
the growing sun, perish with all.


People Over Politics, World Over Wealth!

Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,

Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment

Unite the World!
