Aztec Sky

img_1297_400Under
An
Aztec
Sky
The
River
Ran
Red.

Over
Green
Valleys
And
Corn
Tallies.

Over
Adobe
Houses
Made
Of
Clay;
Over
High
Born
People
Knelt
In
Prayer.

Under
An
Aztec
Sky
The
River
Ran
Red.

Temple
Priests
Holding
High
The
Beating
Hearts
Ripped
From
Lifeless
Forms
On
High.

On the
Stepped
Pyramid
Of the
Moon.

Feathered
Soldiers
Fought
Their
Flowery
War in
Honour
Of their
Feathered
God.

Under
An
Aztec
Sky
The
River
Ran
Red.

Spanish
Swords
Slaughtering
Soldiers
In the
Streets;
Dying
People
Crying
In their
Sleep.

Over
Green
Valleys
And
Corn
Tallies.

The
Last
Day
For
The
Aztec
People
Of the
Sun.

As
Montezuma
Bowed
His
Bent
And
Broken
Neck.

Under
An
Aztec
Sky
The
River
Ran
Red.
