Slanger Man

they put all the hate of the world
into a single
individual
a man fractured
by dreams and
bloodlettings

tech to make a god
blush and the moral 
authority 
had a field day
with their best bibles 
but failed 
and the process began:
sentient love
removed
kindness discarded
empathy 
torn from the nest
tied down
to the rotting earth
force-fed humanity
til his soul opened 
like a tendon
raw 
amid the elements

they expected
great roars of rage
harsh unethical
violence
instead 
he quickly quietened
went unconscious
never woke

all that hate had made him
tired
