Hell is empty and all the devils are here – William Shakespeare
The cunning hell of mutilated truth
ignites airwaves with gaslight candles.
Do not press your ear into a flame
that demands sacrifice so devils can mine gold.
The human heart cannot thrive on selfish gruel
or grow compassion in the drought of bitter tongues.
Test each word before you speak, because once the knife
cuts you will never escape its wound.
