    when did you write this poem? And am I right in saying that the industrial revolution and its cost is at its core?

Best Poem of Amos Greig

Social Decay

Steel capped icebergs' pierce the sky.
In artificial towers
Rapunzels refused to let down their hair,
Satisfied to watch the tired and hungry
Like ants scrabble for scraps.

Sharp eyed ‘suits' stand at bullet proof windows.
In climate controlled towers,
A hand forms an O shape
Crocodile smilers imagine crushing every bug
Before returning to solitaire and innumerable
Facebook updates.

Smoke like a jealous lover hoards the city
Smothers the masses in her choking grasp
Industrial furnaces churn out mass produced
Tomorrow's perfect flawed ...

Ducking The Weave

In late summer your family disrupted the roads
Brought traffic to a standstill,
A line,
Mother and children blocked the way.

Bright plumage instead of banners,
Quack quacked in protest at our
Intrusion into your domain.
