Creation Redeemed

After Midnight

The narcissists fall

After Midnight

A new lyric calls

 

After Midnight

Last bugle to blow

After Midnight

There’s more left to know

 

After Midnight

The lizards collect

After Midnight

Old tales to reflect

 

After Midnight

The ticking will stop

After Midnight

The bottom will top

 

After Midnight

A cancerous tome

After Midnight

Malignancy known

 

After Midnight

Betray and deceive

After Midnight

Alone in the siege

 

After Midnight

All footsteps fall deaf

After Midnight

Lost palates are cleft

 

After Midnight

New story to front

After Midnight

Two stars for the dunce

 

After Midnight

The comets rebel

After Midnight

The coroners yell

 

After Midnight

A suit made of steel

After Midnight

Its melting reveals

 

After Midnight

That voice in the back

After Midnight

There’s no turning back

 

After Midnight

A sacred oath sworn

After Midnight

All memory forlorn

 

After Midnight

The wheels bend and churn

After Midnight

Lost vision returns

 

After Midnight

False birth is stillborn

After Midnight

Old vestments are torn

 

After Midnight

The here and the now

After Midnight

That one sacred cow

 

After Midnight

Past-Future unseen

After Midnight

  —creation redeemed
