Nine Tokens

Carnage is within your reach
Sitting on a whale carcass at the beach
Desperation for money and pleasure
Kill and die for a lost buried treasure
Generations changing what we think
The truth can disperse even if we blink
Abortion is the beginning of an end
Could we sacrifice a best friend?
Impress an authority skeleton to be free
Launch a death race to win the giving tree
Live in a world that judges what we adore
More gratuitous hatred will lead to gore
A psychological trail that delivers fear
No opportunity to make a smokescreen clear
Sound of static echoing throughout perpetuity
Tiny souls wandering corridors with no maternity
Beauty dying away like a crippled, abused flower
Is there a mystery watching us from the tower?
