Honoring Master Poe, Darkened Verses That Saddest Of Truths Reveals

Honoring Master Poe, Darkened Verses That Saddest Of Truths Reveals The infinite black, oozing forth relentlessly unholy and unmerciful dread with infinite sad cries from those once innocent and now long since dead Only evil, and its many platoons of shadowy, and most ravenous beasts can forage about for far more victims on which to torment and then feast As this world, in its accursed and wicked wars can so many millions destroy by nefarious means, even using greatest beauty- as it did with Helen of Troy! From within deep bowels of earth up rise murderous legions of savage doom man striving for eternity, but always meets evil and an unwelcoming tomb Yet within Spring's Hope, man's sweetest of dreams, promising much more always thought, Time for pleasures, treasures and gold, that one final score Yet folly reigns, therein lies thunderous and those all powerful hands of Fate where heard are sounds of Fated dread, words- "too late, just too damn late"! The infinite black, cruising the land- to destroy and to be bloody well fed with infinite resources, and victories from battles gushing bloody reds With wailing cries from those seeking promise of Love and much longer Life comes deepest of sorrows born from war- pillaging and world gifted strife For within each breast lies a hiding beast, always ready to maim and kill with Lusts to Feast upon those innocent victims, for its wickedly sated thrills! Robert J. Lindley, 3-05-2020 Rhyme, ( On Reality, Dark Truth And Humanity's Endless Lusts And Greed ) Note: Celebrating being exactly 66 years young today, I decided to honor my favorite of all great poets, Edgar Allan Poe. Thus a very dark poem was called for and one that speaks of modern times and reality of this truly dark and evil world that we ALL must journey through on the way to our predestined and most unfortunate, untimely end...

Wow. That is dark my friend but also wonderful. It sent a shiver down me timbers. A real treat in a morbid kind of way. I would never dare to enter such a dark place. Have a great day my friend.

Thank you my friend. As I just logged in to comment my code to log in was 666.... A superstitious man would think that an omen. I think it a mere coincidence. Or else Poe or Raven sending a message ... hmmmmm...
