Menace of History by Edgar Foxall

Life is a spark between extremes,
Earth and the heavens together clash,
Pale Kingdoms vegetate in dreams
Else softly and as softly crash.

We think in pools between the sharks
Of history looming through the void;
Beneath the whiskers of Karl Marx
Libido generated Freud.
