Das Reich ist gefallen

Das Reich ist gefallen

 

Red, white and black

splinters and shards of cristal

Blood stains the pillars

the white is tarnished with filth

Black shines in uniformity

pellets cascade a rain of death

Beleaguered ruins stand as silhouettes

as dragons roar their fusillade

Papers flutter in a calamity of despair

red skies sound their sirens

White sheets in capitulation hang

as black hunters seek their final prey

Hells back yard is amok

last rounds and cyanide do echo

Banners in tatters of previous fame

all is scorched in a flaming famine

Red, white and black

A good, if horrific, portrayal of hell's back yard Keith.
