Gunboat Grey

A steady ooze of east ice air

Hope torn from Pandora’s Box

A forbidding sarcastic jest

That greedily lingers

With gloomy dry death crows

Croaking on whistling wings

As the punitive snowflakes

Relentlessly float miserably

Arctic fingers reach

With frigid steel claws

Invading at each opportunity

Crushing souls face flat down

A dirge dragging everyone

Into a slammed-shut oubliette
