The Day After Greed - Poem by Eric Cockrell

walking the greying streets,
between the broken down
and vacant buildings....
through the alleyways..

concrete graveyards...
the hint of smoke hangs
in the air.... the stain of soot,
the taste of death... lingers....

i closed my eyes and saw
the bodies... strewn in the street
like trash blown against a fence...
eyes wild, faces contorted, ...
death, and it's brothers and sisters...

storefronts dark and ominous,
gas pumps stand alone like angry
sores, oozing into the emptiness.
great black birds fly, casting shadows
that search for tiny particles of light....

stray dogs roam in packs,
hungry for flesh!
only the sound of the great
oil rigs pumping in the distance....
an old tattered flag blown
by a cold infidel wind!

    Hi Great Buddy.... An end of civilization is likely the end of greed..... The final
    picture deeply imbeded here...the day after. Hope it's not a vision you saw...
    a phophesy..... how sad to think that. Greed is a horrible monster... could
    be the only time it would ever disappear would be extinction of the race of man.
