the zealots and other psychos were expecting
asteroids and super volcanoes and searing solar flares
and reversal of poles and the the earth turning over
and Jesus piloting the Mother Ship to retrieve us
but no no no to these childish fantasies
of the spiritually mentally and emotionally disenfranchised
The Apocalypse is slow and daily and happens
as crime has always happened
one last hammered nerve
one last broken heart and the shooting starts
except in numbers now unbelievably huge
as everyone looks over their shoulder not knowing
which face will be the one who delivers you from life
which zealot which psycho...which foe or which friend...
