As Darkness Descends – a poem


As Darkness Descends


As darkness descends,

Bound for perpetual night,

Eight billion groans, moans and laughs

Adorn its progress.

Obliviously distracted

And living in denial

As the concrete and mud

Steal the very breath

In a slow motion crash

Equipped with no brake or airbag;

Flicking through,


At the frivolous,

As the life

Is squeezed

Out of the land.
