Last Days of Earth {A Clockwork Destiny II}


winnowing..... at the likes of ourselves

we ocularise antithesis, like charlatans,
in lieu of th' antipathy..... that of which

we've all become willing- perpetrators
desecrators, profligating instigators of;

and shame on us all, tho' mortals we be
in betraying, bastardizing all that which

we were taught in innocence...to glorify;
so what do we do now, what will we say

when time doth wash its hands of us all?

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
