In the high citadel of Fear Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai


In the high citadel of Fear
A million subjects knelt before
The bronze throne of Fear.

Tentacles from that throne of Fear
How they moved like fork-tongued snakes
And increased Fear to previous Fear!

The waters gelid flowed and thawed
Before the frost at sunset visited:
For early were they touched by Fear.
