I write what I feel…


Under the Weight of a Leaden Sky

Post No 791


Under the Weight of a Leaden Sky


Greys, graze,

Colours erase,

Faceless figures, nameless numbers,

Making sense of the senseless.


Humanity wounded,

Cut to the core, edges raw,

Someone’s baby,

Somebody’s child.


Chain linked, slashed wide,

Mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers,

Weeping tears,

Stilling fears.


Gap-toothed abscess marred;

History’s face is scarred.

The Beast


A segmented monster,
A body of men,
A mass of humanity
Forming one entity
Lay squirming on the ground,
Hissing and spitting
All around.
Then the head moved
Passed over and down
Until it became the tail,
Curled like a scorpion
Ready to sting.


This was a weird dream I had the other night
where the head became the tail and
the tail became the head. Long way round
to do an about turn! What it meant I have
no idea!
