Cement and Steel

The days
Of cement
And steel
Came like
A cracked
Egg yoke over
Broken backs
Cracked rocks
And crooked
Blocks.

laio000001_400Cement veins
That stretched
Like a web
From the
Mountains
To the sea.

Shinning like
Fake gold,
Yellow gold
Cold steel;
That flows
Under the
Bitumen skin
Like an ancient
Brittle decay.

Crooked
Blue neon
Signs hung
Over crooked
Delphic
Doors.

The
Sodom and
Gomorrahs
Thrived like
A rash across
The land.

Bent
Necks
Slashed
In the name
Of a demented
God.

As the
Young,
Jobless
And poor
Throw
Themselves
From a bridge,
While the fat
Banker chews
On his Cuban cigar
As the blonde
Wiggles;
Positioning
Herself
Between
His legs
Under the
Mahogany
Table.

The days
Of cement
And steel
Came like
A cracked
Egg yoke over
Broken backs
Cracked rocks
And crooked
Blocks;and the
World,bereft
Of the gift of
Prophecy,
Was never
The same
Again.
