Comments about Ryan Brodesser
A flash! A glare!
In the misbegotten street of misery, a light
A hellish flash, and hellish sight
A roar! A shriek!
As it encloses it awful jaws upon the city street
A flash! A bang! As the melting metal falls with a dull clang
A roar, of triumph as the tanks swatting with futile shots
Melt like ore in fire, murderously hot
A sighing wail, as buildings fall beneath its sweeping tail
A fire! Fire! Burning throughout the streets
Killing everyone as it sweeps
A clangor, a cacophony of noise
As the thing tosses ...
When the moon falls on new silver full
Cursed beast and man alike cannot resist the pull
From civilized man to savage beast
Look for human flesh, for a gruesome feast
Lock your doors and pray to the merciful gods
