The Price of Iron

A missile
jabbed its fist
into the socket
of an asymmetrical
potato boat machine,

causing untold tiers
of military destruction
to squander our hard-
earned resources
on a global scale.

The price of iron
will increase
by about 34% tomorrow,
insiders have been warned.

Wharved.com I am a poet. I write poems. Titles and subjects and subsequent readership are all part of one fragmented figment of our universe, and it's nice that we take it so seriously. Hopefully the craft remains and grows stronger for our children.
