Seagulls on a frozen lake

A vision of hell by William Blake 

Or something a lot less menacing

Like a Peter Bruegel winter scene

 

Seagulls on a frozen

How much longer is it going to take

Before the ice starts to thaw?

Before the end of the war?

 

Motionless, they contemplate their fate

At least the geese and starlings can migrate

 

Seagulls on a frozen lake

Enjoyment for enjoyment’s sake

With a paperback and a cup of tea

I could face an eternity

 

Seagulls on a frozen lake

How much longer is it going to take?

This is becoming a chore

Like an extended metaphor

 

Motionless, they contemplate their fate

Like Heraclitus said, this place is dead
