the oncoming

The oncoming

 

The human tragedy is not to learn from the past

The world is in an uproar a nuclear war is coming

The belief is by using a smaller bomb it will not be so bad

So also, is the thinking of the enemy.

Millions of people will be killed and nature already

Devasted will collapse too.

It appears to me that the coming tragedy is ordained

That unknown forces will make it this way, it is uncanny

That we blithely walk around with no care in the world

As the Damocles sword has loosened from it ropes, and

Is about to fall.

What is left is scorched earth circling around the sun

The seasons will come and go in in silence and we shall

Not hear the joyous laughter of the young.

A poem of prophecy, true and very well crafted.
Thank you
