The Mark of Kane #2


J D Cully

The angry woman surveys her native land
Sees ignorance and heads buried in the sand
You told of a city suddenly exploding into war
Of how one rape and rape camps have the same foul core
Fleet Street's stormtroopers tore you to the heart
As they revived the Nazi law of degenerate art
But the Gate recognised your talent and thanks to your good friends
You raised your broken wings to fly again

Did you ever realise how beautiful you were?
Ever realise that you were loved?

Your warmth and rage would brilliantly combine
Your unique voice will never cease to shine
You sang with compassion for the desperate, the lonely and abused
With plays as topical as tomorrow's news
You followed your heart's call and seized the hour
But all too soon love faded and turned sour
You wrote your emotions out so well, how brightly your star shone
But just a few months later you were gone
Oh yes, you stood defiant, you stood bold
Your faith in expression was lovely to behold
Poet of exquisite tenderness with sharp observant eyes
And a vision that none could ever compromise

Did you ever realise how beautiful you were?
Ever realise that you were loved?
