Pale Death of Renewal

Death strides
stalks
struts
empty streets
alleys littered with corpses
life so empty
dancing
twirling
giggling
downfall of mankind
so easy to orchestrate
only takes a few
sheer stupidity
always outweighs sanity of many.
Few have been saved
few will return
to rebuild an age
of harmony
of peace
of tranquility
done with removal
eradication
of those who longed for war
longer for ultimate control
their time is no more.
Charlatans helped
spreading lies
pretending voice of God
spoke directly to
dictating truths
used as vile weapon
utter disregard
yet still looked upon as saviour
why heads in the sand?
Pointed fingers
wicked whispered word
one here
that one there
come together
plots exploded
now the world is calm.
Under brilliant stars
first night light
aux natural
beauty long forgotten
finally to return.

Law of Pestilence

Sodden
grey soaked clouds
low hung in sky
leaden
fearing
wrapping
goodness long defeated
rubble ruin at my feet.
Stand upon the mountain top
eyes far seeing
staff in hand
holds me upright
burdens
weigh down my shoulders.
Creeping
wasting into nothingness
sins gathered
demons called upon
there is no righteousness
there is no goodness
there is only a vast wrath
gathering upon the horizon.
Steeds of death
descend upon innocents
sowing
razor thin death
fog dense with hatred
above all
you rise to rule.
Gloating.
Currying.
Purchasing.
Violence heralded
disgust bubbles
reality intrudes
pictures no longer hidden
lies uncovered
best flee to the skies
like charlatan of Oz
while I look on
saddened
disheartened
for there shall be no victory
there shall be no return
life as we have known it to be
is now warping into something else…..
malignant malevolence
