The whore, of the apocalypse,
Has fallen,
The avenging armies,
Advance, in the darkness of night,
Watched her mighty walls,
Crumble, before daylight,
As the brilliant rising, of the sun,
Blest the heavens,
Before its loveliness.

Death, she cursed upon herself,
Fighting to meaningless ends,
Not twitching an eye,
Unholy souls skirmishing,
Like bands of marauders,
Disturbing the peace,
In the hideous shadows,
Where the Reaper rules,
Within the crevasses,
Of the dark unknown.

Let the fallen armies,
Of the whore,
Bend, break and forge,
From thier collected weapons,
Of destruction,
Into plows,
To purify the soil,
She bled upon,
Let her citizens, plunder,
Her spoils.

Indeed, I see the imagery similar to that found in my own poem concerning Babylon. I enjoyed reading this well-crafted piece of poesy, my friend. Nicely done.

Baal, babal, nimrod...remeber him? This is where anaolgy is appropriate...cause when it comes to evil personified, (personally I don't know anything about it), I can only imagine the evil that lurks in the hearts and minds of men. Good write Mr. Bonilla, Boricua style!

William, you know by now that I refuse to take sides, but I do want to tell you how much I enjoy your writing. Whatever you have to say, you say it with such član.

And I do agree wholeheartedly with this:
"To purify the soil/ She bled upon,/ Let her citizens, plunder,/ Her spoils."
