Light speed

The Long Decline was written in the stars

By those of a fearful, negative bent

Once set in motion, it when down hill fast,

At light speed, one day here, the next it went


 

Many years? Nope, just days it seems,

Unraveling, dismantling, crumbling down

The walls of our fortress turned to rotting beams

Breached not with weapons, armies or force,


 

No, by a mindset
