The Rise and the Fall

Meteors crash

Creating devastation everywhere they touch

Nothing can stand

Dust is it’s wake

Fire is it’s champion

and carnage is it’s steed

Tsunamis appear upon the horizon

Rising deceptively in the distance

The strength and the power often leave bystanders off guard

As they perceive it somewhere in the distance

As a gentle thing that they could easily overcome

They are left unprepared

Their mouths fall open in shock as they realise they were carelessly watching their impending doom

The opportunity to flee was missed

The riches of the ocean floor seduced them as they lunged forward down the expanding beach

Greed and hunger blinding them to the great danger

Many had no belief in such events

But events do not care for belief

The waters always return

As the seduced are swept up into confusing heights

Tsunami’s leave corpses hung in trees

Dangling from power lines for carion to feast upon

Seduction for things that belong in the depths

Feeds the scavengers and birds of prey

Whilst onlookers in the mountains, scream and cry for their friends their families and their loved ones

There is nothing to be done

Everyone is judged that day

Only the self is held to account

For no one can excuse the warnings and the signs

Our decisions and consequences on days and events such as these are swiftly judged

The consequence is immediate

No excuse will be voiced by any one on this day

For it is clear and beyond any doubt

No second hearing or bail is found in this court

Our choices are revealed

And the outcomes are righteous
