"Roll Of The Dive"

Junkyard disaster
Creeping death
  the bringer of plagues
  rats, fleas, mosquitoes
Poem scribbled on wrinkled napkin
Concert of garage implements
  symphony of tools
Clink clang bink bang
Prayer of rarity
  steak uncooked
Bent grass
  crooked straw
Sleight of mind
  trickery of thought
A battle of wits
  against one unprepared
Destiny of a twisted fake
Ha ha wee wee
  tangle bop fizz ploof
I’m on a mount of peas!
Breath of death
  strife of life
Cold, shivering, chattering, clattering
  teeth on ice
Universal truth of poetry with three vowels
  frozen flame
