Last Days of Earth {A Clockwork Destiny II}


winnowing..... at the likes of ourselves

we ocularise antithesis, like charlatans,
in lieu of th' antipathy..... that of which

we've all become willing- perpetrators
desecrators, profligating instigators of;

and shame on us all, tho' mortals we be
in betraying, bastardizing all that which

we were taught in innocence...to glorify;
so what do we do now, what will we say

when time doth wash its hands of us all?
