Mimsy

Eyes in the sunlight

Gleaming twins of razor

Sharply the dagger still

But mortal no more

The disdainful murdered

Conveyor of mischief

And adulterer to reason

Mourn battered hatches still

A traitor’s regret pooling

Flood-waters encroach

The harbor of sanity

Roll back the tide of gain

Reduced to rubble

The firm against change

The lost without roads

A wanderer’s peril is fancy

Havens are warm

With the sounds

Of harmony

Progress is a step

Incremental

But hindered is the fallow way

Towards dismay

Alone but aware

Together and the same

An new dawn is breaking

On the world of fear

Stand amidst bridges

Prevail all the same
