Red

“Let us make man” πŸ¦Ήβ€β™‚οΈ
Flesh πŸ₯© and bone 🦴
WormsπŸ›for noggins 🧠
Breathe life into his nares πŸ‘ƒ
Stuff with rheum πŸ’§ and,
Liquor in the vascular train πŸš†

Black & White
Lengthy & stout
Talkative & taciturn
Fill ’em with juice of white,
potion of red,
And sweat of cream;
The water of life (blood)
Thicker than wine 🍷

A sea of red πŸ”΄
To nourish the core
From which life sprouts encore
Burrowing the deepest crypt in tissues
Perfusing the toughest of bones
Aye! Aye! To the kraken of seas

The taunt of death
In the malady of rheum
Depleted or feeble
Driving the flesh to fester
starve of air & fare
Of the heart that flutters
Rusty till it splatters

Amidst the pestilence
Is the storm of brilliance
To store in advance
Of blood in excess
To fetch in duress
To feign the arrest
Of life, oh dearest

Remember the birthing mother?
The errant gypsy,
Starved weakling,
Infested destitute,
Bulleted warrior,
Gutted conquerer,
All gushing of life
Drenched in red
Waning in sense
Till gloom ensues
The ebbing of life

Skin white as snow
Eyes blank as a virgin sky
Blind as a bat
Growing numb from feet up,
Like one stepping in ice,
Cold,

“What’s her blood group,” asked the charioteer
“Be positive,” said the chaperone
For she birthed a boy of stone
Fitted like a demon summoned,
gods kept her still,
I’m positive!
Peace, be still
For we do not feed on steel
Jah Jehovah will reel you on
Till you feel this warmth
Of life again,
The noise of the living,
And the feel of believing

Cast away this red abomination
For my Lord detests of it

Home they brought her warrior dead 😭
