Atlantis & Ink

Lost kingdom

The world beyond

Advanced, they said

Modern

But really, it was a world like ours

Where money is god and acid showers

Down to the earth

People lost in their self-sized worlds

Wearing, swallowing gleaming pearls

They'd lied too long, profaned the land

And so judgment came, in a titan hand

Their island crumbled, thunder rumbled

And they were never seen again

But the world recoiled at the destructive dance

And decided that humanity deserved another chance. 

The End
