Save The Chile Miners

Let there be engineers on stand-by,
Ready to rescue the Chile miners,
Who blinded by the TV lights may fall,
Spiralling down and down,
Into the eviscerating, Reality-TV black hole:
For the dead-eyed gargoyle vulchers -
Tallons dripping candyfloss razors -

Perching on the sharpened edges,
of humanity's newest, darkest and strangest melting escarpment.
