At The Core
On to the weekend challenge. As you'll recall from your elementary science class days, the structure of the earth can be divided most simply into three sections: core, mantle, crust. Give us 33 words from it. Interpret the prompt however you wish--literal, metaphorical, or somewhere in between.
With the occurrence of each cataclysm
The crust we have so carefully cultivated
Furiously flakes away in the maelstrom.
The mantle offers little protection.
The core is thus revealed,
If only to ourselves.
