Default Poetry!

Some stuff I've wrote...it might seem slightly horrid, but anywhoo.


Slam! go the Interlocks,
Crack! goes the main,
The massive armoured Battleships
Arrive in every plane.

Click! the Hangars open up,
Clang! They lock in place,
Agile fighters power up
and fly out into space.

Warp! The enemy has arrived,
green ships, like lizard scale,
Voom! Their Raiders rocket out
To battle, win, prevail!

Boom! The warships clash as one,
Their shields flaring like suns,
Their weapons burning like solar flares,
Their path set by complex sums.

The planet which they fight around,
a fragile, gleaming Orb,
Its surface specked with broken hulls
and dreams, lying forlorn.

Onboard the warship, Bleeding Heart,
The sirens whir like screams,
A rogue missile pierced their shields,
and annihilated their dreams.

As thirty escape-pods abandoned ship,
a man stood still, and pale,
his love, his life, his whole darn world!
Cast away like a hole-ridden pail.

This was his ship, his only home,
What bad luck line did he trip?
Now he would prove the old phrase true.
The Captain goes down with his ship.

Human and alien, Bug and mammal,
Could they not learn of peaceful travel?
Across the galaxy, across the stars,
War burns bright, near and far.


The Dark places,
The wounds in the Earth,
The ancient temples,
The sacrificial Chambers,
Lie in the Nameless City.

The Empty tunnels,
The dry, sandy wastes,
The low ceilings and
underground stairways,
Lie in the Nameless City.

The Subterrene,
The Hall of murals,
Ghastly and shattering,
Lie in the Nameless City.

The massive Brass Doors,
The unknowable world beyond,
Of Great Mountains and plains,
and abode to the builders of
The Nameless City.

They still live, down there,
Ever-hateful of the Sons Of Men.
They are the Reptilian Intellects of
The Nameless City.


There are two.

What dya think?
