Rumination of the inevitability of dying.


Trade havens which quake as time and walls shift

Safety is an illusion. Who is safe?

But those imprisoned with no means to drift

Along the shore, blind-eyed as any naif


Death fells the innocent. The wand'ring waif

Dies just as hard as thugs and criminals

Caught in the manacles of hell, drones chafe

While true evil peers from their pinnacles


What power can devastation annul

None. Destruction is everybody's fate

Though they dream of passing the obstacle

Destiny waits, primed to annihilate


Live today. Stretch out for the glory now

Everyone must before the Reaper bow

This is a call to action. We all should know what's coming. Our only hope is that it happen in our sleep. In the meantime, let's get busy.
