Terror, terror everywhere; on every mouth, in every stare;
Drummers droning, bleeding hide; sowing scare to dare.
Lies and liars fires strike; burning bridges, turning spike;
Trappers trapped in mirror’s light, throwing glaring flare.
Mirror, mirror on the ball, spinning round until they fall;
Coward playing cowered slight; widening its tear.
Dreamers to their teamers cry; freshened scars do not lie;
Pleading peace with every try, mumming humble prayer.
Terror, terror on my mind; behind my eyes, it’s all I find.
Suffocating soulful light, my quill and paper’s tugging fight.
Mothers, brothers, fathers chide; before going, time’s a snide.
Nightmares, their memories hide; a hollow where they cared.
Terrorists with mirror balls, breathing fear in teething halls.
Sitting on their heightened perch, cutting down their chair.
