Abandoned Mine – A Poem

Chip away if you must

at the rock and rust


Slice your fingers as you scrape

for the last trace


This is not my cliff face

I am not of the stone age


I will turn to the sky

and shout why


knowing no answer comes

but enjoying the oblivion


of pretending for a seconds span

that anyone has the master plan


Then self-indulgence spent

I will strap in my intent


know all I can do is set course

and then grit against the g-force


of a fight against old beliefs

that have cost so many sworn chiefs


even now set to dig in vain

through the waste for a cheap gain


sworn unto death against a new way

holding on to their grim estate


I shall leave that gravity field

sow my seed to see what she yields


and on a lonely plain in wasteland

I will hold on to my lovers hand


watch the cloud of molten gas rise

in a pillar over your pride
