Temporary Dirge

Again it descends
That sepia pall
Which bears my name
And steals the grit so hard won

Prepare yourself
Batten down - disappear
greet the dullard who will
sear the home front
Who will fear a strange smile

Embrace the acrid smoke
The orchestra's penultimate
crescendo in grays and
blacks and whites
The whites of it's eyes

For it has you now
but not forever
