Spiral - Poem by ally gunther

An atom at birth,
Unseen to some-
It twirled and spun,
Til' was left only none.

It's an impossibility,
It kept going,
On and on,

But no matter what's perceived,
The clocks will spiral,
In honour of your spirit,
And they need to be rewound,
That starts today,
Yeah that starts today.

And try as you might,
On your own,
We can't fight-
This battle is won by the veterans.

Through a lense,
I've watched the magnets repulse,
And attract once they sense distractions,
And to see such a sight,
To believe some delight,
The madmen cackle in spite.


And gone are the days,
And those horrible ways,
That the soldiers,
Now wise.
But I do still remember the flag
Hanging amongst those skies-
But it wasn't a flag of surrender,
Don't wave the flag of surrender.

And if they'd sensed a fight,
There's no way they would yield delight-
But the waves keep crashing,
And the lighthouse keeps flashing,
In warning to all the ships-
Yeah the ships all need,
That warning.


And we're all starving we need supplies-
But it'd be better if you don't die.
Caus' without we're not here,
And without us you're not there,
But it's not a matter of here,
Nor there.

But the corpses are cold,
Long-standing and old,
Weeds grow over the top,
But don't you ever-
Let them fill you up,
Caus' you're not dead,
Not buried yet.


And the downward spiral-
It stops here,
I'll halt it for you,
But you need to get-
This clear.
