Suddenly Silence - Poem by jerry hughes

Suddenly there'll be silence.
It'll be inexplicable and eerie.
As though armegeddon
is but a hair's breath away.

It'll happen when the creativity
of centuries is washed away by
a tsunami of mediocrity, and
replaced by a Muck Everything
on a sesame seed bun.
