Random Poem:

Ravenous
Iceburg

Skeletal creatures,
 1
Dark and plain,
 2
Sit at their table in vain.
 3
Their gums do hold
 4
Teeth, two or one,
 5
And the rotting has just begun.
 6
Filthy fumes
 7
Do surround
 8
The cavity that holds their sound.
 9
Dirt expands
 10
And occupies
 11
The pit in which they lie.
 12
Haggard faces
 13
Haunt the dark
 14
And mute the singing lark.
 15
One’s claw-like hand
 16
Does clench the spoon
 17
Like trout in the mouth of a loon.
 18
Ravenous tongues
 19
Devour the rapture
 20
Acidic mouths do capture.
 21
