Street Art Portsmouth NH

Fading friends
stand proud
erect with broken spine
on wooden ledges
missing inventory

taking count
this civil story
of war and peace
in all man’s glory
of whitened sheets
of mass hiss

moan and groan
these prayers to burn
in oaken coals
brightly lit
for all to see
man’s misery

and forged history.
