• Mourn the angel---
    How gracefully he falls!
    Wings, ripped and shredded,
    Stretching upturned palms
    To the abandoning Mighty One.

    Mourn the angel---
    Watch him fall!
    Dipping, mouth agape
    In silent screams...
    Who will save him now?

    Mourn the angel---
    Spare him a passing glance.
    He slams into the gravel
    And his eyes close, gently against the pain,
    As he embraces his loss, with mortality's kiss.

    Mourn the angel---
    How he's changed! watch him fade!
    For he is now just like you!
    Welcome him to this sickened earth---
    Welcome him to reality with your greedy eyes.
