Poets of a New Dawn

Taking a long ink dip in a desert pond, rejected drake words ripple echoes in the wilderness: Tread with care! Dreadnought thoughts silicate crystalized, glass menagerie opens to a darkening sky Wing-tipped metal muse raised to the foreboding air, infusing liquid lightning to the bard birds Watching intently as the anti-gravity atoms abscond, executive electrocution is on a delay timer Prose avian sentries see Splitting anti-social charges seep into the hate-soaked, polluted atmosphere These momentous crisis changes, poets of a new dawn articulate so very clear Tho’ labeled by a scornful society as being conscientious ugly ducklings, the fear factor in the swirling wind keeps increasing it’s whirl war buffeting Incoming V-formation of ionized mallard birds dropping kinetic malevolent words Stork deliver radiation babies — Blackhawk moving targets that glow with surgical stealth Caesarian precision Whilst the designated survivors be the fleeing flock having open duck ears Poets of a new dawn continually pen agitate strong current ripples in the desert pond Letting their U2 ugly quill mirage liquidity dose infect the minds of those who syringe swan dive in beautiful disbelief

Totally loving this avian assault on the senses and should I be one of those New Dawn Poets, don't wake me until the war is over. Fantastic.
