Unjubilee

 

this is the year   of the unjubilee
bandersnatch rampant   on a sinister bent
grimereapers spew   the noisome spoil
    of the unjubilee

landlubbers flee   the clutchhold's snarl
parchmen conspire   to corner the rain
airmongers suit   the world to the deeds
    of the unjubilee

doomyeast leavens   the badyear blimp
a flaming oil rig   scolds the sky
the moon limps off   to the lazaret
    of the unjubilee
