Here Comes The Darkness - Poem by louis rams

Many thought that it was an eclipse that covered the sun from the sky
" but the darkness was world wide ‘
Scientist frantically searching for answers, as panic began to spread
And so many thoughts going thru peoples heads.
We have had most every disaster known to man, and we are the ones
Destroying this beautiful land
GOD gave us life and freedom of choice and it's time we raise our voice
Our world leaders think only of themselves and they're the ones
Putting us thru this hell.
Everything in life cannot be concrete and steel - give the earth
Time for it to heal.
Now we are worried about the darkness covering the earth
‘ " maybe it's time for a brand new earth "
Then from behind the black clouds a light from the sun, and a face
Is seen by every one.
A narrow face with piercing eyes, shoulder length hair on both sides
Below his face was a pair of hands with holes in each and religious
Faiths began to preach.
Then from the darkness came a thunderous roar unlike one never heard before.The world stood still all eyes to the sky as everyone was saying
Their last good byes.
He waved his hand and the darkness cleared away, as people fell to
Their knees and began to pray.
He has given more disastrous signs than I dare to say- humanity
Has to find a better way.
