Alfred, Lord Tennyson
From here you will see the end of the world 
Through the looking glass of computer screens,
With the screeching wail of modem calls curled
And whistling moments that trigger screams.

The touch tones of terror inducing death.
The lines of coded horror typed in trance.
Monsters launched skyward with fire belching breath
To breach security and kill our last chance.

Alfred, Lord Tennyson, British poet, was born today in 1809.
