Smelt

Then the apes came
And tore down the mountain
carried it all away
And burned burned burned it all
The smokes choked
Furnace belched coke
Cinders in heaps 
Of this filth I’ll speak no more
And we end at forty ore,
Right on cue

  1. Love the ambiguous title, evoking the smell of fumes and an image of the apes at the furnace amongst all the burning and smoke – great imagery and use of alliteration in the lines:
    ‘The smokes choked
    Furnace belched coke
    Cinders in heaps’
