We came back from the city / In ones and twos and threes | 23-Nov-16

Enquirer is trying to find out who wrote this poem?

We came back from the city
In ones and twos and threes
Some in halves and quarters
And some upon our knees

With a compass and a Geiger
We moved on powdered stone
While the gelatine archangels
Sucked their drying chips of bone

Further out a steeple
Had raped a crowded bus
And the world was full of flies then
And the flies were full of us

Eyeballs rolled like marbles
Across the grass strewn floor
And the rats came out and sniffed them
And let them roll some more

Let’s cobble the new city
With the kneecaps of the damned
And bless god, queen and country
Until the next last war is planned
