Far away and long ago
kings in castles high and low
and things of beauty to behold
all worth more than their weight in gold…
Finely crafted gilded glass
sculpted moldings iron casts
and tables set with cloth and wine
essentials to a vaster time.
Cawing clawing invisibly
the axes cry the sledgehammers sing.
Lying dogs awake from their sleep
when leaning towers crumble like teeth.
And the pages turn before they quickly burn
to a salty pile of prisms and wires.
Values mark their shift in course
innovate without remorse
prepare the cannons, load the guns
a new world order has begun…
Sliver, sterile, steadfast, and clean
the standard for a brave new machine.
In fast-producing efficiency
the lights will flash in florescent green
and the tables turn before they quickly burn
to a salty pile of prisms and wires.
Far away and long ago
stars will set and suns will glow.
