Marks In The Sand


Sitting in his ivory tower,

built on the sweat,

blood and bones

of those who helped him

build it – then, when they

had served their purpose,

sacrificed on the

gleaming altar of greed.


High ambition in this

glass and steel Babylon,

where His armies

were to take over the world.

Britannia slain but defiant

drops her shield and surrenders

but the black horse

is too strong for his coffers.


The pharaoh falls on his sword

and takes the priests

and acolytes with him

in a grotesque danse macabre.


The angel,



in despair.
