We Stand Hand in Hand in Aftermath
« on: April 23, 2007, 10:11:41 pm »
(This is a draft for the Age of Aftermath magazine project.)


We Stand Hand in Hand in Aftermath

The present's almost over
and it flows away from me
Reflecting back a memory
it drifts into the sea

They say we see sepulcher
in this bureaucratic tangle
but the field of poppy culture
is just one camera angle

We bathe in time, an acid bath
and We dissolve, perplexed
So begins the age of Aftermath
exhaling what comes next

We're hand in hand in Aftermath
the age of what will be
Horizon smoke is rising
from the wreckage that is We

Remembering, forgetting
this cultural bazaar
Bureaucracy is setting,
so arise the morning star

And in the smoke what shapes will form?
What phantoms will we make?
For we are made of form and formula
but also dross mistake

Not just a pretty face with a fake moustache after all  :wink:

Finely wrought

You can't get out backward.  You have to go forward to go back.. better press on! - Willie Wonka, PBUH

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.
