A POEM BY : Ben Dunk. 1978

 

RIDDLES

 

Fair flow the lilywhite sands of time,

 

when life begins anew;

 

after the Holocaust -

 

and this shall be the righteous sign,

 

to fall into view,

 

where men war boast.

 

A mighty hand of wrath across the river;

 

a piece of painted pumice in the sky,

 

a golden orb floating oer a city

 

and the people shiver.

 

Long life to those who try

 

and death to those too petty.
