A Man in a Small Room

I see the world outside my room there hence
and see the trouble up and starkly set
but none can stop the beast, machine of fret
they built and prais’d now fearful run for pence
but none can find safety of penitence
and run in fear and lamenting regret
I see them from my room and see the plight
but can do nothing, though my door’s not tense
I welcome in my room all who would come
but none can stay and crave the race to hell
they rest a time, but leave quickly at pace
I watch them go and scream, terror is from
the beast, machine they built in hopes to sell
everything they held dear, now gone to grace
