“Bowstring”

Taut bowstring sinews do quell the violence
Holding back the swings of Hulk’s blind madness
As the body quakes, raging in silence

Blood meets fury in vengeful alliance
Goosebumps rising like spines on a cactus
Taut bowstring sinews do quell the violence

Surging veins pump anger in defiance
Furrowed brow and cold-eyed stare scream malice
As the body quakes, raging in silence

Voiceless the warnings blare out like sirens
Until hate turns to lashes so callous
Taut bowstring sinews do quell the violence

Striking out with morality’s license
Tumbling down into darkness with Alice
As the body quakes, raging in silence

Head spinning on insanity’s islands
Anger gives way to deepening sadness
Taut bowstring sinews do quell the violence
As the body quakes, raging in silence
