They said: protect and you'll survive
8lbs. Of over-pressure wave seemed to glue him to the wall.

(And our milk-man didn't call)
Didn't see his bottles fall
Or feel the warm black rain arrive.
(And our dust-men haven't called).

And in deep shelters lurk below, sub-regional control
To mend your body or your soul.
Self-appointed guardians of the race with egg upon their face.
Find nobody here.

Burnt shadow printed on the road now there's nothing there at all.
