In a blur of              inner city
(macular)                de-
corporate                vampires suck
the blood                of the nation,
toppling                  steeples
and spires,
dessicating             beauty
with concrete        make-overs,
car parks               and high rises,
leaving only
outcrops of history,
occasional surprises
on a motorway flanked by fields,
canopied by enormous skies.

  1. This is so damn good!
    Will the corporate vampire win the election? I don’t know, but I do wonder who is the lesser of two evils…
    Kind regards
