Author: A.L. Butcher
A short collection of poems dealing with politics, war and the vagaries of life.

The monster reaches,
To tear the poison sky.
The poet’s wife
Weeps tears of blood within her grave
A prophecy of Promethean fire.
The monster’s glittering eyes, multifaceted
Reflecting an eternal desolation.
Creatures within the steel belly,
Slaves to the god of commerce,
In the service of the damned.
A foul concrete skin
Mocks the soul of the mother of creation
Hideous spires, like claws through Heaven.
A modern monster
Born of the hand of man.
