The lights barley flickered down Wallstreet. Faint glows mirrored the granite steps all around, its flight, haunting the skeletons left there.

No one left to bury the dead.

No one left to protest, but wind.

Millions had marched.

First, Down Broadway, near the Police Museum,through the once bustling Wallstreet center,and beyond .

Laying tattered, the once proud flag, that draped the steps of the mighty economic fortress.

Its remnants, held tightly, in the hand of a withered corpse.

How could they have known? How could the voiceless have been so ignorant?

The Bull rocked from its foundation, the crippling horns embedded into broken concrete-like so many other things, this once proud city held onto.

Now, the price of it all.

Its still beating heart, never again... clutching.... the exposed ringing of the daily bell.

Protesters, and workers, and people. Yes, the people.

"Kings we make of them, fools we are to become"the sign read.

This soul was right. His voice though, silenced, like the many around him.

Death could not have been avoided. They knew.

Its price of grandeur, its inept freedom,whisked by the sudden death, that doomed the many... the one.

The guillotine of wealth...came calling.

wow, that's quite the poetic fictional experience. I think it would read a lot better if it was spaced out more. You know, to look neat and tidy.

Of course. Just copy and paste this into your op. I just edited it again to correct a couple of commas so it should be good.

No problem. But i corrected a couple of mistakes with commas and it didn't make it into the op. You should re copy and paste it from my post. Sorry about missing those the first time.

"Before I draw nearer to that stone to which you point, answer me one question. Are these the shadows of the things that Will be, or are they shadows of things that May be, only."
~Charles Dickens 'A Christmas Carol' as spoken by the character Ebenezer Scrooge

A haunting vision of a possible future. Something to fear, yet something that may be inevitable and, as unfortunate as it may sound, necessary for change to rear her weary head.

I like it. It was like you combined Orange County Choppers with Occam in the title and then shaped your thoughts poetically.
