When Prophets, Seers and Divine

Messengers done their work

And Humanity received

Warnings

Encouragements

Exhortations and

Guidance

 

When Earth refused to yield her

Crops

And the Winds refused to

Ventilate

And Fire becomes permanent

Uncontrollable

Destroyer

And Water refused to be

Life-Giver

It is closing time

Curtains drawn

And Hope bids

Farewell

 

When morning clouds

And the setting Sun

No longer showed

The brush strokes of

The Master Painter

When the oceans

Tormented by stormy

 Torrents

 

When the ink for the

Tired pen is empty

And fingers grew weary and

 Cramped

 

When printing presses

Silent and

Book pages blank

Electronic enlightened

Robots

Utterances garbled

And sounds unintelligible

 

When Reverence not

Understood

And Innocence muddied

And last orders taken

It is time

Shops closing

 

The last Play

Played

The last sermon

Spoken

 

What to be

Foretold

Been told

Received

Rejected

Unheard

 

Humanity

Is

Unease with

Self
