Play in feature-length/ Our Creation.
Depict the wavering ceremonial flames.

Yet, the shrinking /candles/ snuffed out
and receded back to film - propaganda.

Prior feast deceiving / inquisitor questing
common citizens as shrapnel-blasted minors.

For the first time /they compel you/
to walk - upon the edged bombshells

that drown out their drones of relentless
misinformation - cavalcading the crying

tombstones. Burials within the white oil -
fields -- damning -- the dressed in tradition.

Tell the tale/ tell of living hell - of the land
which no paladin attempts to purify - rectify.

Name said /locked/ to decay for mere scraps
of prerequisite material - Requiem for Bread.
This piece is a Ghazal (Info on that here: [link]) and, in all honesty, speaks upon a subject so common, yet, so frequently misunderstood. I do hope you take the time to decipher the work and see what exactly I am conveying in this first attempt at a new style.

Poem Title: Requiem for Bread
Written By: Tristan Cody

Thank you so much for your time,
Tristan Cody.

"For the first time /they compel you/
to walk - upon the edged bombshells" That was the highlight for me. :D
