The Fall Of Many Giants - Poem by Angelica Duardo

When you see the giants fall you know it’s time to run
And if you hear their loud deep roars
You’ll know they’re coming after us, so run!

Try not to listen to their moans, just run!

The gods have had enough
They made the columns fall through the cracks
Crashing down everyone in between, so run!

Don’t try to save our queen, just run!

A whirlwind of clouds will circle around
Giving a false illusion of falling down, down, down
Down under the rocks until we hear no more clocks

So count not the hours but the survivors
And care not for them, but for yourself, so run!
Just run!

Try not to listen to their howls, just run!

And thought you might be sick to your entrails
By now, my friend, you should be brave
And keep running away from them, so run!

Until you feel no more your fear, just run!
Though it would be best to keep your fear abroad
You must continue to feel frail and small, so run!
Just run!
