Here's a poem I wrote

Post by Alexios Komnenos on 2008-05-30, 13:52

I thought about posting this in the "Battle poem thread" at the .commie, but it's not really a battle poem, although it is about a nuclear war, and the signs of the end times.

Signs of the Times

When man is turned against brother
When we all fight for the profit of another
When we learn our leaders lied
They’re leading us to genocide
Signs of the times…

When your glorious towers fall,
Bringing death upon us all
When fire torches your lands
Churches burning by brigands
Signs of the times…

I watched them lift into the air,
Angels of death, lethal but fair
Planes, flying into the night,
To complete humanity’s last rite
Signs of the times…

Oppenheimer’s words ring true
A million souls this night they slew
On CNN we can watch the blast
And we ask, are these days the last?
Signs of the times…

The valkyries come here no more
For there’s nothing brave about this war
When man is slain without remorse
Because of politicans' discourse
Signs of the times…

The repetition of the title line is very effective.
