the bone carver…

bone carver

his carvings
can be found
almost everywhere
though
not rare
each piece
exacts
a high price
for
a human life
must be sacrificed
to provided
the stock
from which
he shapes
his wealth
this primal matter
is what makes
his sculptured
death masks
all
so dear
to his patrons
patrons
of the art
of wealth
through
war
who
move through
granite tiled halls
adorned
with plaques
praising those
who
died in battle
protecting
the mythical theology
of
freedom
and
justice
for all
but
really
who
just collected
the carver’s
trade staples
of
human bones
