Treasure Island

Alex Daydream



Cannons raging at a million decibels
Ears pounding; shattering with blood
Death cannibalises as internal structures combust
We all must die
The time has come
Apocaly pse of the very nations
Apocalypse of the very foundations of our ground
Nothing shall survive
Nothing shall endure
Nothing shall make its way through and be stronger
Predicted for millennia
Passed off as a joke
We all must face the consequence of our naivety
Corpses thrown bloodily up in the ashen, collapsing air
Lungs constricted unable to scream
Bodies decapitated; torn to fleshy shreds
Death, death, death, DEATH, DEATH, DEATH, DEATH
triumphs at last; his era has come
Scythe in hand he strides amongst us
Nought but carcasses evolutionising
The time has come
Apocaly pse of the people
Apocalypse of the children of our children
Nothing shall cry
Nothing shall scream
No dignity or help shall our deaths be granted
Only a silent vanish in the chaos of hellfire and doom
Death raging all around
Throbbing noise as the Earth itself pulsuates and
opposes the mutinous ravaging of itself
We lived our lives without being believers
Only so many of us expected the worst
Others expected to live forever
We all thought ourselves so wise yet we are none
Our bodies ashen and greying, withering in sight of
All that is happening to our home
No-one has family anymore; no-one has friends
Dead and dead again
Death, death, death, DEATH, DEATH, DEATH, DEATH
crows over our desolate forms
victory in his eyes so black and
satisfaction at the eventuality of his once-hungered belly
Death, death, death, DEATH, DEATH, DEATH, DEATH
is here, has come, to take us all
to suck our souls with his jawless mouth
for it is it is it is it is
the time

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
