                                   carved faces more real than
                                   peoples’ cross-hatched lives
                                   make chaos easier to understand

                                   as curse – March of Civilisation –
                                   the beginning of the Word has it all;
                                   those who know of symbol

                                   come to participate and connive
                                   in that to which it points, those
                                   who don’t live and struggle on

                                   bench-cold poverty, but it brings
                                   the nation together like glue, we
                                   know where we stand and the

                                   wheels keep turning over cobbles;
                                   the buildings were raised and we
                                   burned the common traitors with

                                   our whore-y little compromises

Alan Moore & society wormhole: the dash is magnificent / the shadow grotesque
buildings & words wormhole: under silent direction of architecture
compromise & life wormhole: the streets just fill with business
faces wormhole: 1962
