    Battle Cry

    I stand astride the world a colossus
    Preparatory cloak
    Building steadily under smoke
    Emotional maelstrom patchwork quilt
    Voiding the fabric of felted guilt
    Revival power woven through lifeblood silk
    There’s no force more potent
    Than revenge and milk

    Crippled was the aged jester
    Muffled and screaming
    Backwards fester
    Light distorted through prism renders unmade
    Clasps one’s heart in eternal shade
    Few know the price you pay
    When lost in detail, death and day

    I must make a new concoction
    If I’m to bust and beat and box ‘em
    Mixture forged of recycled flotsam
    As old as dragons
    Kindness rots’em
    Fire can come from ashy corpse:
    Dependent how long the soldiers drum
    And if new colours blend into thoughts
    I’ll make them more than simple noughts

    Constructing now from barrow magnanimity
    Grumption’s finger once pointed inwards,
    Curling back out from vineyards
    Will show only me

    ~ Dan
