Penetrating Eagle

 a poem by Joshua Brown


Scavenge for a piece of flesh
Scraps of food, pillage death
Hungry for a taste of meat
Little eaglets nested in retreat

Angry mother overhead
Piercing eyes betray the dead
Virtue from her soul depart
Pangs of violence from her heart

Protect herself with raping mate
Visions in the childrens fate

Betray.
Betray.

Fly above the sleepy zombies
Broken wills and spirit flees
Protected by paper and guns
Clouds of evolution, green suns.
