Desolation:

Despair and decay......

Songbirds without presence,

No pleasure on display,

Dead and rotting trees,

Across the horizon,

A skyline of thick smoke......

And deafening silence,

The sky is dark with even darker clouds,

The sun will rise no more,

Life is now obsolete,

The earth is rotten to its core,

Like an apple fallen from a tree;

It's bruised and mouldering on the ground.....

Parasites engulf it,

They devour it with no sound,

A post apocolypic warzone,

Human existance is now deceased,

The air's a toxic poison,

It's a silent, deadly beast.
