Burning Woodpecker Waltz

Economic, supersonic, spatial undertaker;
embryonic, time-tectonic, shitty city slicker -
a sky to slay, waste away,
for siege and blood with trebuchets!

Empathetic, copacetic, altruistic Man,
holy, all-controlling zeal there buried in the sand -
the maker's mark within a quark,
and some forgotten meaning-ark..

Cry the moon, the wounded wolf,
scorned the pack for scars,
forsaken-Cain, go wander off,
find company alone in stars.

A thousand years come and pass,
and still burning in the backyard
rapid-fire destruction sings;
the woodpecker,
the waltz,
and flight of bent and broken wings.
