somebody once told me
two vast and trunkless legs stand
way out there in the desert someplace
next to them on the sand
with a look of cold command
lies a shattered half-sunk giant stone face

Well the years start coming and they don't stop coming
half sunken visages hit the frown running

@selfsame I actually spent like 15 minutes trying to do something with the second half! it gets way harder all of a sudden

@maxkreminski @selfsame
I wrote something similar on birdsite last November, and concluded that since "the years start coming and they don't stop coming" is the central theme of the poem, the only right thing is to either cut it off there or repeat that line for the rest of the song

@CeruleanK @maxkreminski 'It was looking kinda sunk just two legs without a trunk' ahhhh perfect
