Jaundiced peril engulfed the world,
As in the cauldron incantations swirled,
Chasm of bones were filling fast,
And the latest generation was becoming the past.
Maroon lava drowned the water,
Storming along capturing whoever sought her,
Rain of lightning struck the hope,
Making sure no human could cope.
Ebony eyes glared at the human race,
As they tried to quicken their pace,
Crimson death stained the grass,
Turning it as clear as glass.
Charcoal laughter echoed throughout,
The cavern of darkness where no-one came out,
Clocks without hands chimed midnight,
As rusted hope was out of sight.
Golden lakes were dyed blood-red ,
In every home blood was shed,
Silver tunes were torn and shattered,
Carcasses were over the world – scattered.
Cinnamon embers were long since gone,
A charcoal sun no longer shone,
Rusted promises lay cracked on the floor,
Sadness was heaped on the world, more and more.
