Deus ex machina


Ah to ruddied Easu run

In languid rivers arabesque

There Simple Simon feebly squabbles

For prepared tables yet to sup


At long last the Armageddon

Stretches long in bloodied sands bereft

Breeding black marble, diamond children

Carved slip-shod silent in the din.


Ah to cuckolded panacea falter

Where bloodied water whets

That stillborn cup surpassed.

Our costly satiation cleft

New urban idols dead in sin
