Michael Helsem


Hard to surrender, juggling knives & fire.
Earth’s last defender: juggling knives, & fire.

They bring old plastic to our scales to weigh
& then we tender juggling knives & fire.

These days too much i turn to worlds i’ve rued
as on a bender, juggling knives & fire.

Old horseshoe crab, your kind before us played
most tightwad spender, juggling knives & fire.

Graywyvern knows not what to this dire Caesar
he ought to render, juggling, knives, or fire.
