The face of fear stands exposed
In the cowering silence so bold
Possessed with the burden
Of a dying, decaying world:
Rotten rivers and furrowed mud,
Fallen trees and yellowed fields!
Last of the spirits must now leave,
Poisoned by the air they breathe.
Howling waves and the silver moon
Shed crystal tears on a barren Earth
So bony white, eroded to the core
Men gone; their destruction stays on!
Flesh and bones lie in a heap
Men, women, children weep!
Bloodthirsty, the weapons they wield
Remorse none for their sinful deed
Nor shame, or dread, or fear deep
How long this power will they keep?
Remind them how the tides swell
Listen carefully to the death knell;
When evil prevails, dark forces abide
Anguished voices fail to subside
Karma watches, records does keep
Seeds they sowed, so must they reap
Time renders mercy only to the meek
The Punisher arrives and will seek
The fearsome who now fearful seem
Bloodied swords will lose their sheen
This twist of fate, how events turn
Destiny can make, break, and spurn,
Tormentors humbled, tormented so
Cowering cowards, all in Death’s row!
