First Line: Cruelty has a human heart
Last Line: The human heart, its hungry gorge.
Subject(s): Bible; Mythology; Religion; War; Theology

Cruelty has a Human heart
And Jealousy a Human Face,
Terror, the Human Form Divine,
And Secrecy, the Human Dress.

The Human Dress is forged Iron,
The Human Form, a fiery Forge,
The Human Face, a Furnace seal'd,
The Human Heart, its Hungry Gorge.
