Out of Context

Distorted specters of human flesh fused to scale and wing, claw and beak;

bleeding saints tipped into flame by double-headed, horned shades.

Their nightmare visions escape our present-day understanding, although

history opines that people then deemed eyes for eyes as justice well served.

Was it brought upon by churchly fathers fostering fear to dominate?

Or based on actual happenstance of bloody, vengeful, lordly acts?

Methinks the scribblings of today are no less filled with skulking demons.
