Dire fires threaten dire paintings,
Set by dire men, defending dire idols
Who tied their hands to the crescent moon.
War broke out in the studio,
Getting further from the truth.
Blazing through the skies above,
From deserted continents,
They cook the dove.
"Down with the towers,
Blow the roof!
Down with the active streets,
And those with minds aloof!"
Yet in the battle halls,
A canvas there for eyes in awe,
While behind the towers fall,
The pen is drawn,
The pennons bawl.
Yet echoing through the city streets,
The innocent fall to the ground,
As fires set upon the town!
The pennons show a winning streak,
By force while their emotions leak.
"Down with the warlords,
Let us draw!
Down with the active planes,
And deadly bombs!"
Between the clash of different laws,
A single sheet sinks down unharmed.
Flowing through the blackened fog,
Gracefully, it mocks the sacred hog.
"I know this guy who sought divine,
And was believed to speak His lines.
He lost this truth by middle-life,
But through his lies he claimed a wife.
"Don't let him gaze upon your children,
Fight his old-age desperation.
Spill the ink to blind his vision,
Tie his hands to the crescent moon."
Battle cries and splitting shots were silenced,
Even spitting fires ceased to whisper.
As the graceful insults fell aground,
Laughter struck the once conflicting crowd!
Part II of "Pennons of Madness."
