Treasure Island

Matthias Pantaleon

(August 24,1984 / Oronija Island, Nigeria)

Armageddon


And then
I saw this white dove
Descend down the heavens
With a branch of Olive in her peck

And then
On the end of the earth
Perch a vulture
With a pond of intestine
In her peck

And the vulture
She let go of her savage
The city whore
She desert the gate

And the soldiers,
They buried their amours
And the adulterer; her shame
Then I saw these things
And I knew Armageddon has come

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
