m t-54 battle tank

A Poem by Alkonost

filigree and lace
armaments
for the Martha Stewart
t-54 battle tank
special edition
cupholders, mounted
rail guns
with those
pink bullets
(a spring colour)
the latest thing,
best technology, up to date
graceful home living
entertain
by the flickering light
of burning buildings
cozy night sight
bulletproof, bloodproof
stain resistant
personalized with
personnel
gold leaf dogtags,
etched call signs
in calligraphy
for quick reference,
convenience and
authenticity

Cracking write, very satiric. I like the way you mock the whole edifice of niceness. I don't know who Martha S is, though I believe she iswas some kind of TV goddess. So the tank maybe symbolises how TV celebs are really steely monsters who roll over our lives in their steel-clad egos.
