ways/

©2021 Michael Raven

the new ways lie broken
shattered and painted in
dried blood stigmata
the culling of overgrowth
ignored

the groves return
old growth, old ways, old songs
where honor still lives
fathered by ash
oak thorn

we sold souls for tuppence
where we should have
kept the gold
hold on to the old ways
hold on to before

gambled lives
gambled lies
time to toss the dice &
watch the bones dance
before settling the score
