Please convey a reason for

heartless, egotistical treason

as a world screams from above

the skies a cold dark shaded pallor.

Into a desolate dream or perhaps

a moment of secular hospitality.

Can you hear a breathless voice

of children you’ve failed again?

Into the darkness of spatial depths

hell's glory stands tall at the podium

rejoice, rejoice and sing your praise

of an infernal reason for your treason.
