"Peaceful Sleep"

Masses huddled in one place
Sleeping within this void space
In piles like kindling wood
Sacrificed into the mouths
Of waiting ovens
Devouring until they're ashes
Cast upon the ground
As though
Bones rebel destruction
Ne'r do they glow
Dying in their faith
Broken wills to live
This is their sacrifice
Is all they had to give
Still their voices call out
Snuffed out lives but not in vain
Until the end of time
The world will know their pain
