Silo!

The desert was flat you could never tell

that below where you stood

was a military bunker and missile silo

from a time years passed

built here on this lonely barren latitude

that had a bad attitude!

 

An everlasting reminder of mans ingenuity

negative approach to peace

of times that have gone but do still exist

creation of terror and destruction

yet for many this factor has disappeared

to die is no longer feared!

 

Thinking foolishly that all conflicts will end

is only in dreamers minds

always there simmering the spark of war

lay in wait in human culture

where somebody is ready to light the flame

so conflicts in history doth remain!

 

The silo is but one symbol of the bloody past

forever on humans the shadow cast!

The Believers

The believers sat in their bunkers

or on a high point.

Waiting for the spectacular end

that never did occur.

Sure it was correctly translated

feeling sullen and deflated.

 

The majority had taken no notice

carrying on as before.

Our climate was slowly changing

nature ignored mankind!

Scientist unable to stop the process

had they accelerated the mess?

 

The believers carried on their wait

in case they’d mistaken the date!
