can you hear us now?

we've paved over the bones
  of your followers.
we've destroyed your
  mothers, lovers, fathers, daughters,
and now we search
  in our souls for yours.

can you hear us now?

metallic monsters roar
  across plains once living.
trees stand, stone, towering
  and lifeless.
life itself becomes a zombie dance,
some shout and cry but few
  know that it is you we need
  think of your existence
  and wonder...

can you hear us now?

and do you care to answer?
