English: Feast!

English: Feast! (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

This ravenous hunger
Will not be satiated
These elegant hosts
Not here ingratiated
A perfect feast
Is kept at arm’s length
To bridge this distance
There is no strength

The fatted cow lies
In glorious display
This perfect savagery
Here we betray
And for our soul’s need
There’s no sustenance
You can’t withstand this
Don’t know the dance

The knives are raised now
To partake of this feast
But who is the diner
And who the fallen beast?
The hallways they call you
Where you know you can’t go
And you find of this evening
Just a lost, failing glow
