Your people’s will is a mangled corpse.
Its parts are scattered across your fields and streets,
its blood splattered across your fields and streets —
feasted upon by creatures
with insatiable greed for power
and thirst for blood.

What creatures these,
that gorge themselves with the corpse and blood
of your people’s will?
To say they are monsters
is an understatement.
