World of Steam

world of steam

Tread quietly, this world of steam
Is built from people’s broken dreams.
It’s where the ghosts of hope despair,
Evaporate and fill the air.
This is the hinterland behind
The dispossessed and tired mind,
Where parasites rake through the muck
And gather round to cluster suck
Their prey.
This is space that splits the dreadful night from weary day,
Complete with mezzanine and view
Restricted to the chosen few,
Who laugh and joke whilst looking down
On hopeless dreamers as they drown.
