Iron Birds – Thirty Poems in Thirty Days # 12

I’m doing a month of poetry, one new poem each day for thirty days. Here’s number twelve of thirty.

Iron Birds

I lived in a time
When my father’s farthest
Fantasies
Were of iron birds tearing
Through the skies

As the ages passed
The fantasy drew nearer
Closer
To reality
And more distant
From that distant past

I saw empires rise
Those same empires fall
Crippled by their selfishness
As souls burned in their own filth
I felt the air grow heavy
With their cries

So it has been
Entire civilizations come

And go
I live now in the age of iron birds
That my father fantasized of
So long ago
