The Fearless Tower - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

White hail
on the white town.

Here, at
the exact point

where the Sava
& Danube

come together

the “Fearless Tower.”

Here the Forces
of Good


(so legend tells us and legend never lies)

the Forces of Evil
are based in Avala

a few kilometres
outside the city.

Each night
the Forces fly out

to do battle
for the day.

And here bloody
but not bowed

a new dawn
is born.

A scrawl of birds
like a signature

flying off
a canvas

to tell
the good news to us

as yet
