BITTERNESS

More bad news on the news this morning.  The devil’s work.

Their mouths are full of cursing and bitterness.  Their feet are swift to shed blood, ruin and misery are in their paths, and the way of peace they have not known.  There is no fear of God before their eyes.
Romans 3

in its death throes
hatred rages
shedding the blood
of innocents
as the serpent writhes
and the roaring
of the sea is heard
across the land
