Just Off Hallowed Ground

Spitting in the face

Of the weary                                                               (and unwise)

Hiding in the remains

Of a broken altar in a position                            (so crooked)

Aligned to no known religion  

Sitting this one out whilst the others

Scramble to understand orders                         (just given)

Preaching to the converted                        

Waiting to return back                                           (to previous form)

the ruins seem carefully placed by hands     (unseen)

One path passes through another

(Looking from above)                                             like a cross

And an unfamiliar insect crawls

(Over tarnished bronze)                                        is shown to be really a traveller lost
