    Cold iron raises it's forts in the sequence
    Of knitting it's own existence into ours.
    My God…we'll all be SLAVES!
    Is it strange that it is will against this misery
    That loses it's, ever smaller, dynasty of heroes?

    It is the commencement of something real…
    Something ultimately raw and achingly gray.
    I'm afraid to say it…but it's the oldest pain -
    Old as the legacy of this solar domain,
    This part of the dream reluctant universe.

    Our lives are no more and no less
    Then the songbirds in the stasis of sickening noise.
    Its lyrics sing our collapse and fragrant undoing
    On the stench of our cowardly blood and, finally,
    Our hearts within it's blade's reach will cease their struggle.

    In the bottom-most heirlooms of human decay
    Our trembling faces will turn into phantoms
    And the bright cascading agony will burden us
    With methane and barb wire
    And none shall say there is no lesson learned.

      This speaks so resolutely of war and the desperation and hopelessness of soldiers caught up as pawns in war! No bright rays of sunshine there, only gray and desperation!

    Your writes walk the edge of brilliance and genius, and sometimes lead the reader helplessly to where he doesn't want to go! Your writing is unique and brilliant!

      I wish I could find the words to describe this poem. It's the perfect description that I've read so far regarding the 'endless waltz' of war. The vocabulary you've used here really adds to the overall effect.
    Honestly, after reading this for the third time, I still have to say that this wasn't written by an amateur, great job!!

      A grey poem. Like drops of glacid water falling on forgotten stairways that head towards eternity and beyond.

    And you stay there and write the story of these drops, that keep falling, and falling, and in the infinite silence, there is only this repeating sound...

    "And none shall say there is no lesson learned."
