"And The Sky Caved In-"

The night sky collapsed sending down,

A cascade of stars like bullets,

Darting through buildings, piercing skulls.

Voids and fractures in the pavement,

Soon becoming rivers of blood.

The darkness falls like a heavy curtain,

But soon the fire of the fallen sun,

Devours that curtain with blue-tipped flames.

Hazes and veils of smoke as black as charcoal dust,

Rises over the world,

The planet prolapsed like a vital organ.

Screams of terror, half-choked by smoke,

Bleeding corpses, broken limbs,

We die with the planet we've been killing for years,

And blame that planet,

The blame-game, the only game that humans can play.


The End
