Harbinger Of Death

By Malcholm Dark

From a distance so far away
and from a time so long ago.
When stars collaspe and worlds decay
where galaxies refuse to glow.

It skates across the Saturn rings
effortlessly through time and space.
The ageless one, the prophet sings
on course to greet the human race.

We've watched it now for one long year
heading toward its' destination.
Riding upon the wings of fear
an errand of annihilation.

No astronauts in NASA ships
no captain Kirk to save us now.
As cries of sorrow pass our lips
I guess it evens out somehow.

Watch now, the harbinger of death
most probably our final sight.
The sky falls down, we hold our breath
eyes disolve in a flash of light.

The sky turns into fiery dust
as life on earth comes to an end.
Our world becomes a redish rust
a million years for it to mend.

Yet here upon this world now dead
within the sludge of mud and sins.
Where once we lived, where once we bled
life finds a way and it begins.
