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.
