OZYMANDIAS IN WOKING

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on September 18, 2009 by Tudor Rickards

Martian fighting-machine

London calling
then silenced

Black smoke
Weed oozing from cylinders
and
A crazed cleric
cries Armageddon

At the weighbridge
grappling with fighting machines
The Thunder Child is breached
beneath us

All is fury and clamour

Then

the lull beyond birdsong

Silence again
beyond the smoking
valley

Downstream
once green lands
now in the hands
of Ozymandias
as we head for Woking
