The Witnesses

When they die

you call them gods

made and placed in shrines.

 

Hoping to convince the uninterrupted generations,

defiance was the response;

The terrible choice between denying

and the claim that these could catch fire

Among the disaffected and the restless

who had inspired with the idea

who had dared a stubborn dissident

who had refused to obey

And took for granted the sacrifice and submission.
