The World Is Burning - Poem by Gerry Legister

The world is shaken by Armageddon awakening,
Kingdoms began to rise and fall with repetitions,
Crying out for peace and security monitoring
Apathy and ignorance the coalition of Nations.

The world is heading into perpetual state of war,
Renegade barbarism spilling out against everyone,
Whose forms are drying the dripping tears all over?
As the pain wanes, fear comes again to bludgeon.

We have much more to learn from those confuse
With the flames as they burn in effigies of regret,
Dilemma and derision with jealousy that lit the fuse
Blazing rivalry on this kindred planet in our orbit.

What became of Constantine long legs of Byzantine?
Shoots of Europe rose and swell into Nordic spell,
Metallic statue in gold stood with Iron of Great Britain.
The world is burning and manoeuvring out Israel.

Atomics and allies the former history recreate
Within the European Union, I saw the long legs of iron,
Driven by fewer hands who knew not how to consolidate?
The fallen empires of Egypt, Assyria and pivotal Babylon.

Our world is ending and we are in the shady ambiance
Hearing the Echoing sounds of extravagant Atlantis,
Noah’s unconcerned generation, drowsy in science
Bulls of Basham coming from the labyrinth of Abyss.

    your deep knowledge shared brilliantly here

    the battleground is being prepped

    a few toxic demons killing mother earth
    and her natural inhabitants

    Saturnites, no thanks
