gleaming golden domes
crumbled to dust
& blown asunder by a tempest
that howls like the damned.
A land once Heaven touched
teeming with bounty for the sons of man
now cowers under an ashen sky
Mechanical angels ravaged by rust
tossed aside like neglected toys
the promise of greatness corrupted
into a sermon of destruction
scribed in blindness by hatred & greed.
