The Steel Ones

Red-eyed and dark 

The shadows move.

They outnumber us now:

Four feet;

Four eyes;

Hard shelled,

And hateful.

When did we lose the battle

For our own existences?

Was there even a battle?

I see the odd biped 

Moving through the flow 

With fear etched upon their face.

I share it;

I hate it.

This is the world we have created.

This is the world we once owned.

I see it all from my house

Nestled between mountain ridges.

I see it all from my eyrie

Where the steel ones can’t find me.
