Two hammers rang out
with dull metallic thud,
first one, then another,
Sweat dripped, running into the holes,
soiling their work,
wetting rough spikes,
making their journey smooth.
Raising It into place, Its beauty struck
with the brutal impact used to form It.
Its grotesqueness ran red over the hill;
Its shadow stretched out--beyond belief.
His body jumped,
fingers scratching at bloody spikes,
blood stained eyes
creeping open on a now pure white world,
