salt-cured-fish-eggs

will you bury
your
dead dreams
beside
promises failed
will
the grave stone
proclaim
your innocence
how
you
were
forced to
participate
in
pagan commercial behaviors
against
your
will
consuming
more
than
your fair share
while
others begged
for
morsels
of
charity
and
respect
leaving
you
to
complain
about
wine
improperly chilled
indeed
there
is
undue
coldest
here
