Civilization's End -- Poet Veritas

CIVILIZATION'S END

Who will be left to bear witness

at civilization's end?

Indolent masses, micro-focused on the minute-to-minute

knee-jerk stings of getting by,

looking at either their shoes or straight ahead,

failing to notice

the crumbling periphery and shuddering foundation

as the advancing army of black-shrouded attackers

devours the tenuous lights of civilization

as a cloud occludes the sun

and yields the way

for the rise of the blood-red crescent moon.
