A Poem of the Earth’s Last Days

A Poem of the Earth’s Last Days

for Terry Collett, Richard Lynn Livesay, Rene Allen, wendy c.

That beast wretched

Blame the foul monster

With distaste for love

It’s Satan’s terror o’er all earth

Furious with His incarnation

Invents new strategy for nuclear war

New weapons, new nuclear plants

New operative plans empowering extremist nations

Where terrorism is a divine signal

Where the young suicide bombers are brainwashed

A blow to the lamb. No.


Now Christ thee save,

Thou reverent believer!

I pray, O Lord

Let not the Devil kill

The faithful with truest heart

Let no radiation paralyze them


Our lord won’t allow extinction of earth

In one moment millions will disappear

The sun and moon will be darkened

As we have sinned

And divine wrath will devour us

In such tribulation

Prince of Peace

Coming on the clouds of heaven

Protects the faithful and believers

All were swept away

By the hail of shells and missiles

Only the believers

Only the Virgins with candles ready

Saved by a lighted beacon

An exact replica of resurrected rose


Amid nuclear holocaust

Jesus protecting his sheep

Global civilization crumbles

Earth melts and disappears

The chosen few escorted by His hands to

Eden where with one loaf

He feeds the thousand

Provides them living quarters

Safe from Tartar

Horde of nuclear radiation

Non-believers are left behind.
