Came across this picture while searching for another one and it stuck in my mind until I had to write about it...dark I know but that is the nature of this mornings muse...



Smoking Gun


Do we really need a written invitation

Can’t we see the writing on the wall

As mother earth spins out of orbit,

Dark clouds gather before the fall


Life’s hourglass fills with quick sand,

While the universe waits to implode

God-sent guardian angels hover tiredly

On the very edge of overload


Blasted by an electronic maelstrom,

Evil manifests itself on open ground

Armageddon seems the likely outcome,

Search and seek ye wayward bound


I can't swear that there’ll be hell

or heaven when the final battles done

But who really wants to stare down

The barrel of that smoking gun…

This is brilliant! It encompasses the nagging fear in all of us. My short stories of late have all been of this genre. So I'm putting out a book of Tales of the Apocalypse before my birthday, 12-21-12.

However, as history shows, every generation has its view of the coming end. Except for small setbacks, every generation has been better than the last. Not for all, but for most.

Indeed...and a smoking gun it is....sometimes our muses have dark sides that won't be denied...giggle...enjoyed this, Fee...
