And When He Falleth

– That cross you wear around your neck;

– It offended no-one. No – it simply appears

the symbol of a deity long dead.

– My ancestors tried to find it. And to open

– Believe?! If you believe you are gullible.
Can you look around this world and believe

Someone… something rules in his place.
