100 Years Later...

the carbon monoxide of cynical advance
will endanger the humane greenhouse.
warmongers will gather in a luxury mart
displaying more nippy and eye gloating cart.
creeds will stand as thin and feeble veil
as the paradise will lean against the adjacent hell.
the atrocity unleashed by the banshee mobocracy
in a raven`s voice will sing for the plutocracy.
the strides and strums of puffed-up science
will crush tender grasses as only ugly choice.
a flower plant will covet for its own motherly garden
throwing off indignantly all the spiritual burden.
kids will rocket to the maritime Eden Gardens
and homes will dwindle in myriad minuscule heathens.
peace sucked gaudy goblins will saunter like monarchs
and bills stuffed scarecrow like effigies will salute in honor.
the bleak morning frightens the portentous nights
all the coaxing hands are devilishly turning off the lights.
no savior can save the giant ship that is dipping fast aground
plenty of carcasses and corpses but vultures won`t be found.

    Well-done, Partha. Good imagery, and well-paced. For another take on your theme, read Apocalyptic Talk, or Patient Zero One. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
