Silently the danger approached very rapidly
gathering speed as it careered onwards
many eyes through telescopes observed
could see the object moving this way
on earth humans continued their folly
disbelieving of what could soon occur
others searched for provisions to hoard
merciless violence then soared!
Predictions had told of this for centuries
but few thought it would ever be
nothing would changed greed still ruled
there could be nowhere for us to flee
darkness despair man’s future grew
death and horror the only view!
No fresh air sun or sweet singing birds
happy children innocently playing
a meteorite certain was going to collide
ending in terror man kinds very existence
it was said this was the long told prophecy
as it hurled closer to the earth’s surface
the few hid deep in secure habitation
no room for most of the population!
By a miracle or very poor miscalculation
it passed by earth at close proximity
a warning how fragile the balance of life
is as it hurtled on a vast space highway
chaos reigns the shock soon forgotten
mankind carried on just as rotten!
Was another chance being given for us to repent
or the eventual destruction an internal event!
The Foureyed Poet.
