Boy in the Desert
poetic scribble by Bob Axell 2009


There was a boy
He stood in sand
A corpse at feet
A sword at hand

It was this day
He became a man
And walked around
These barren lands

Slaying folks
As he had been told
And he grew grey
As the earth grew old

The valleys swayed
When he sunk away
Not even his parents
Mourned that day
