Okay, so I usually write funny stuff, it’s just every now and then…do I think the world is ending? Nope not now….So what inspired such darkness…..the ever shrinking water supply in Texas. Good news is on the forecast though in the form of a promised El Nino in the fall, so let’s hope….
World Gone Dark….
Through morning of darkness , making the path forward, stay ahead – positive
don’t tilt toward the spiraling staircase going down
that cast out pit, dug after the big war still warns of demise
those of us cast off into a motherless world
a world without familiarity, touch or comfort
don’t trip walking that tight rope
the abyss is great, survival is impossible
where did they all go? The ones who once embraced truth amidst fiction?
Find your way out
passages of despair, city of fools
in a book too voluminous to read
hurry about – rodent on a wheel
no idle time for you
still a fatted pig, but too sour to eat
go outside into a cast off world
wait for Armageddon
you were warned about the 20th century
behold the next…
no need now to view that handful of dust
to feel fear, fear rampant and invisible
it strengthens with the blowing wind
face masked in dust while watching the lakes dry up
wonder where there once was to go
what is safe, warm, inviting
cruel, hard world
rough edges, dark depths
black paint-covered canvas
where to go, what to do?
where is your strength in the early, dark morning?
loosing the way, searching wildly around
feet can’t carry you now on those weak knees
exhaustion is heavy
oh this sarcastic world,
help has gone, dogs of society unleash their teeth,
the prophets fall, the sun also rises, blood streaked in a tainted sky….
