“Vae Victis!”
Woe to the vanquished ones
Whose dreams, under the heel were crushed
Victim to the world uncaring
 
Pray now, to the soul
Deafened by the din
A babbling brook of numbing waters
And a silence louder still
 
Nod thy head in pity
For the servants that remain
Enslaved to their desires
For the conquered have no rights

(2013)
