FIRESTORMS

A. W. Nutter

Firestorms struck, killing man kind
Ivory towers quickly turning to dust
Treasures and fortunes all left behind
Melting, burning and gathering rust

Nuclear winter, locks the world in ice
Destroying the rest of God's creation
Man's destruction brought on from vice
Fitting testimonial to his depravation

Sun unable to penetrate the clouds
The rain continuing its endless siege
Cleansing the once fertile grounds
Nature reclaiming her lost heritage

Forests grow, at accelerated rates
No longer barren, fields turn green 
Animals, the only creatures God creates
To inhabit the new garden of Eden

    the fiction of today could easily be the fact of tomorrow...i'm cooking one up called mommies little monsters....it's going to be about the sad survivors of a nuclear holocaust...but feel free to beat me to the punch if the idead grips you

    Oh wow, what a chilling way of ending this, Anthony--I suppose we deserve that to happen--it really is ironic how mankind was assigned to be the caretaker of all things yet we do the opposite--a very thought-provoking write that also wonderfully written, thanks Anthony! --nikko :)
