I cried

as I watched the people's minds unfold

telling the story I'd never want to be told

I smelled blood on the hands of gods

as the ascension to Parthenon began

How did it come to this?

How did we come to this? 


I cried even more

as the cherubim blew the horn

announcing the pardoning

of criminals, thieves, and liars

who neither repented nor recanted

But we still bow down

and called it "Zeus's Will"


I cried

as the numbers flashed before my eyes

Demons partied in glorious lies

Victory is theirs at last

I watched 

as the flames of Hades burst before my eyes

50 million people heading to their own demise

Why did we come to this?

Why did it come to this? 


Hope has fled the horizon

Frail, beaten up and abandoned

The dark days are here

We will now only know the Face of Fear

We already went through the dark part. Now is time for the love in light to shine.

The World Reconfigures

Like a dog with fleas, the earth will throw us off and reconfigure for a no flea existence. It will sound like clarions and angel wings - and death will rule for a while. - slc

Witnesses At The End Of Humanity

A long long long time from now. Our descendents will curse us probably. Until then, enjoy the high carbon signature products. We really suck at long-term survival and Earth care.  - slc
