Karma died and went to Hell

No one saw her go

The sky bled green to say farewell

Mother Nature’s saddest show


The Devil met her at the gate

Grinning from horn to horn

My eternity is your reward

Your soul has been reborn


Into the flames of misery

My wish is your command

Within a flash Karma replied

The devil did not understand


You are but an illusion

A state of Evil’s mind

Bad Karma’s here to release the grip

You have on all mankind


With that she took her mighty sword

And struck the Devil down

As the flames began to wither

Karma crushed his wretched crown


And somewhere in the Heavens

Good Karma’s smile was seen

Her alter ego gave us all a chance

The day the sky bled green

If only Faust had read this before selling his soul. He would have gone to the gates with a nifty little blueprint and courage on his lips. A tale of justice, right versus wrong in a world sadly lacking thereof.

Karma's vindicator! The bill changer at the car wash ate the greenback! The Day the Sky Bled Green is nature's way of the Equalizer and for Christ's sake, God has nothing to do with it! Sin is sin and retribution avenges the evil of religion, period! Onward and've displayed incredible storytelling from the depths of burial, the art of petroglyphs and skyward in your most recent's been a monumental journey of truths through metaphors, are the Fixer.

Love and Appreciation,
