    Spyder La dah de dah

    Spoken words
    reduced to sinders

    ashes in the funeral pire.
    fifty strong men,
    spent their lives in fire
    waiting for the wind,
    waiting for the earth to enrage
    drawn into the night
    and came to extinguish
    the ravages of ages.
    Where children play in rubble.
    Where their school lyes in peices.
    Where the corpses of so many lye.

    I've seen a couple of people use "lye" instead of lie...is it a welsh thing?


    I like this poem. Spyder sums up life again!

    Hehe thanks! its nice to have an old poem brought back up!

    this one is about the aberfan landslide disaster that occured in wales a school was completely destroyed by it, and many many people lost their lives.

    it happened long before i was even born, but it was still a topic i felt that i had to write about.

    it's even better with the background. Impressive! I like that you seem able to draw inspiration from significant events or scenarios- you tell important stories.
