In one single tear I shed,

I'd like to think I weep

One single ocean.

*

And in that ocean,

There are fearless pirates

With glinting swords

*

Who attack

Fearful seafarers with only

An unblemished jugular to offer.

*

And these reckless pirates

Grope greedily at their bounty.

Red souls painted upon fickle fingers.

*

I come to the realisation that

I have an ocean full of souls

Gliding down my sorrowful blush.

*

And within my palms

I hold a universal grief for

The injustices of a million massacres.
