The Bend is Near

The Bend is Near

A Poem by Brett Campaigne

It is the mistake of every age
   to believe that its generation
            is special enough,
          albeit chosen,
       to see Armageddon
This belief supplements progress
          envirtues sacrifice
                    reinvents suicide.

The truth is
             we are not so lucky...

Before the novas of annihilation bathe the spheres in a white twilight
                                                                                                      we will fade to gray
                                                                                       unwatched by gods
                                                                              or celestial observers
                                                                  unjustified by a thousand wars
                                                        unenriched by the rubbage continents
                                    as craftsmanship is totally enveloped by commodity
                   swarms of brain hungry zombie infants            freshly bursting from abortion cribs
                                     from California                  to Dubai.
And when they have hallowed our skulls             we will be disappointed at its painlessness
                          at prophecy deferred
         into the molasses of infinity.

again with the speachless tides, deep with the reguards I say you hit either one of those coasts.. with the magnitude of your voice afloat we could eventually see it rock off axis the land in the middle
that's how much power you have written....good stuff

great play on words.....just another bend in the long-winding road of history. i do believe in an end to this world as we know it, someday, but i do not think it will be in my generation or the next....but I believe it will come.

Very well written, though i believe we may see Armageddon, love the format, excellent poem

entrancing in its bones of mythos muscled with the context of human inward falls and outward self destruction~fleshed with a celestial song which will spin on and on long after we are stains of memory floating in universal dust~
stunning thoughts and composition~ touches deep into the primal cortex~

A cosmic explosion of imagery. Really feeling the impact of this write.
Outstanding craftsmanship.
