Hell Upon Earth

The livery on fire,

  its horses set free

 

Misery beckons,

  the future to bleed

 

The gates are broke open,

  all streets painted red

 

Death has awakened,

  life dragged from its bed

 

One bugle is left,

  blowing perdition’s melee

 

All swords are unsheathed,

  terror sharpens dismay

 

Tomorrow unpromised,

  today but a curse

 

The monster has cometh

   —a hell upon earth

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: February, 2016)
