Does your button-down oxford dream of irons at night?

by AlaSkA   Apr 18, 2007

Beware the ides of march
could parch ones soul of baleful decay
the polyester Pilgrims with the cookie cutter answers
for just such occasions..
a last day dance of dinosaurs
angels with metal faces,
and iron giants left to rust in the rain
are going quietly into the night..

    This poem has a very deep point to it
    the free flowing words which is no what I will focus on at your request delivers an unrest in the demonstration of mans inability to remain passive it the passion of disagreement, or in least how it makes me feel

    Wow... oh my god, I am speechless... The title caught my attention and the poem utterly impressed me. You managed to say so much within such short piece which is remarkable and this is truly amazingly deep and refreshing, different than anything I've read before. The imagery and profound lines left me in awe. This piece fits my taste for poetry exactly: It's metaphorical and unique, with breathtaking descriptions. I can't find anything to critique here, the message is conveyed in fantastic way. I like how you connected the first line with the ending line, that gave me impression of an endless cycle as a frame to the essence of poem. Overall, greatly written piece, truly memorable, it is certainly going to my favorites.
