Despite Our Best Efforts

from by DeathCrawl



awake to an eternity of rust,
hung shoulders, heads in the sand
hail the descent into forgotten empire
long-weary eyes rolling inward
from once distant sight
praying for a war that never came
still suffering its defeat
the door is closed on progress
keeping busy, ruining all
there will be no legacy
only ghettos and graves
cities of corrugated tombs
mountains of trash and decay
hide in shadows no star can vanquish
jealous eyes with forked tongues
lashing out at distant crowns
casting endless blame
despite our best efforts
we ruin everything
