The last

Jane Dougherty Writes

Painting: watercolour by J.L. Bilder

1280px-J.L.-Bilder-_(A617)

We were not the first
But shall be the last,
And when all that came before,
That grew and flourished,
Bloomed and thrived,
When all that lived and loved
And nurtured its young,
Has gone into the blackened pit,
The lightless charnel house,
We will march triumphant through the ash,
Clad in all the garish colours
Of heaven and hell.
