Does anyone cry

When my cathedral burns?

Does anyone weep

When my shrines are destroyed

Root by root?

Does anyone wail

When my parishioners flee

Hoofprints fading?

Does anyone care

When my buttresses topple

Birds taking to the sky?

Does anyone protest

When my spire crashes down

The jaguars howling?

Cathedrals burn every day

Yet their screams are silenced
