"Shadow of Men"
By Neville Johnson
Another monotonous day,
Just like yesterday, like the day before.
Life bleeding into a mindless blur
A seemingly limitless landscape,
With dull patches of red glowing far beyond the horizon fueled with detestation
Nights turn to days and burn to black
Another day tomorrow,
it will burn to dust
