From City Six: Ratland
upcoming anthology, Stories From City Six.
"Don’t speak about luxury –
we have it all down here,
here where the air is clear,
here where your filth is near.
Here we are kings and we
know of no man to fear.
Here we see things that
infest the Earth’s mantle, here.
This is the kingdom of those you can’t catch,
the empire of dirt and the cavern of black.
We are the scuttling ones who grew fat,
on the carcass of City Six:
We are the Rats."
