large trucks crashing

Standard


the kings of the dragons have come
  to
  claim their prize
they’ve been eatin twisted guardrails, twisted

by large trucks crashing off the road


scary sounds leftover
      from 2 weeks of vehement work
it doesn’t matter where the directions
come from: “I got ya, I got ya”
that’s what everybody was sayin

but two weeks on the river
didn’t change the pattern of
seering, slamming, scoffing, and rattling
by the starring eyes of the steely kings

and we all were falling over
but some had worn helmets and survived
but afraid and dumb
    when all was
finished in the game
  between checks and balances

then everything went quiet
and the horses fell too
