This is the first poem I was inspired to write
Tangled metal sweeping skyward
Giant gasometer pungent smell
Chimney stacks tall and slender
Black as night and pouring forth
Sometimes white sometimes yellow sometimes green.

Amongst all this men are working
Sweating shouting sighing swearing
Molten metal firey furnace

Surely this is hell on earth.
