Get Rid Of The Advertisements

They Sat Outside the Farm House
there were three beasts,
in the field we burned,
or shall i say,
God destroyed.

'everyone was sick,'
they reminded me earlier than night.

so i laid myself back down,
into a rickety, cast iron framed,
bed with, what felt like,
nothing more than,
an elongated, worn out pillow,
rather than a mattress.

there were still three lions,
patiently sitting out in the field.

'i know they're there.'
i spoke above the noise,
of night's silence,
which is, in all actuality,
not silent at all.

those lions stood there all night long.

'Father, Son and Holy Ghost, perhaps!?'
