Where are the warriors
Whence plunged in horrors
Mortals of thousand colors.
Where are the curious curators
Trothed with tectonic ancestors
Who healed thousands sick on their corridors.
Where are the witnesses to the sculpted scriptures
Where are the religious orators
Shepherds in exotic pastures
They said we are more than conquerors
In their woven words of metaphors.
Where are the menders of broken mirrors,
Of hopes and tampered future
We must all bridle this ravenous vulture
Pestilence with sledge hammer of torture
Promiscuous plague of global signature.
