Holocaust.

A rare word for burnt offering.
I cursed my faith.
My own two hands
For my wicked nature
What good could come of this
The burning of books
Ending in an inferno of man.
Who took that word
and branded them with it?
Burnt whole.
Holo-kaustos.
Ashes to ashes,
Dust to dust,
The offering once made,
we deemed not enough.
