The Angel

The Angel sheds tears as she sings
A song so sad that it stings
The children were taken
Their innocence forsaken
The weight of their cries on her wings

How did the world grow so hateful and cold?
Compassion traded for bars of gold
Greed for the tallest tower
Drunk on their lust for power
For coins their souls were sold

Her wings trembled with anger and ire
She confronted the kings of the empire
The men would not yield
Every one of them she killed
Their palaces destroyed by fire
