The Flash
poetic scribble by Bob Axell 2009


The flash was bright
It flashed all night
With all it's power
With all it's might

It shone so fierce
It shone so fine
It shone all day
It shone all time

Then when next day
Came into light
The glow had vanished
Seized to fight

The alien vessel
And its bright lamp
Had sunk down into
The swamp so damp
