Haiku for Evil of the Daleks

Behind the gangsters
Anachronism’s power
Connects the ages.

The mirror’s image
Projected through history
Bursts into monsters.

The human factor
Is in another castle;
I’ve travelled too far.

You promised me gold.
But how many more bodies
Must I bury here?

The swords magnetise:
As our experiment folds
The games can begin.

Through velvet shadows
The bellow of a demon:
Remake your planet!

But why not question
The orders of a Dalek?
Emperors are dust.
