He Lurches Amid Ruin

A tale I'll tell of endings
and fire and smoke and doom
of beauty laid to waste
amid the shadows and the gloom
of things that maybe should have died
and other things that did
and wastelands where fair cities were
their peoples gone to wraiths
some were driven wailing into an oily sea
some were eaten, some were drunk
some trodden in the mud and stone
some suffered ghastly fates
unknown to thee and me

A work in progress
