The Crimson Tide

The Crimson Tide

The crimson tide flows from the underpass

The copper tang affronts the morning air;

Feet scrunch and grind into the ground the glass

That lies as witness no-one else is there;

Apart from she no more alive poor soul

Whose vacant eyes look on with empty scorn;

The many lifeless parts make not a whole

But tell a story of a life forlorn;

Unkempt appearance dirty needles shame

And filth all lying round upon the ground;

What's the rhyme and reason who's to blame?

And now upon our ears falls not a sound;

In life is death an easy part to play

Who gives us night once snatched away the day.

The colours, the imagery is divine. I can smell the fresh air.
