Judgement Day - Poem by Elizabeth Ungemach

A wind as still as night
A shadow lurks below
The ground… it is alive
It’s blood, a molten flow
It sleeps beneath the crust
As it has for so very long
Waiting to erupt
Like a ticking nuclear bomb
The world above, so peaceful
Beauty at it’s best
For 650,000 years
It lies below and rests
The end of days draws near
With every second that goes by
Our hearts and minds are filled with fear
As we prepare to say “goodbye”
We see our world begin to melt
One glacier at a time
We lie to others and ourselves
That everything is fine
We see it in the movies: a giant piece of rock
Bearing down on precious Earth
Though fiction… it is not
Possible it is for an asteroid to strike
Elusive and aggressive
It might soon be in our sight
Yet although very possible theses scenarios may be…
Our planets true demise
Is the hands of you and me
