Heaven Help The Ones

Heaven help the ones
Who lead the march
Across desert bare
Filled with trees
But nothing there.

Smoking hot
The earth upon their feet
Sending curses up
To gaunt, hollow cheeks.

No one calls, no one speaks
All is silent
Except for wailing
Seeping, creeping sounds
Calling, calling souls
To their sad defeat.

Let us help
Let us find salvation for
Those who need
Those who cry unmercifully.
