The Watchers

The pit-wheel towered, glistening.
The wind is frightened, listening.
The watchers waited, praying.

Below, the earth was grumbling.
Black layers heaving, crumbling.
The watchers waited, praying.

The darkness whimpered, crying.
Beneath them men were dying.
The watchers waited, praying.
