The Amorphous Wanderers
The circumscribed blue, yet painted limitless,
espied familiar trespassers, no... aghast! Invaders,
disturbing the Celestial Kingdom of tranquil poise
with their creeping agitated army
of incipient, transitory Amorphous Wanderers.
The heavenly arbitrator of the eternal vogue
implored the vagrants to avast the province,
but availed not. For the bulging legions were earless
and multiplied faster than Hydras.
Numbering more than the sands of the ocean,
their commanding eratic chauffeur
waned, fluxuating fast, slow and desultory.
could be seen amongst the troops.
In turbulent formation they echoed
upon the horizon, rumblings of war. Faintly...
louder, then louder until
the tension burst and
the inevitable happened; war had been declared
peace was imprisoned!
The inscripted masses were
unleashed in torrents of chaotic stupor.
Roaring cannons reverberated the heavens
as their salivating lips spit forth
brilliant flashes of fiery destruction
to the innocent in its' path.
The uncontrolled freighting Tempest raged
stronger and stronger. The limitless
minions poured into the battle in
vigorous homicidal ardor, intent
on their goal of their only creation...
death! in saturation. Finally...
millions became thousands, thousands
became hundreds, hundreds
became just a sprinkling few. Peace,
the still Peace, reigned serenely
with a Rainbow of Calm. And
that concludes another supreme victory,
engraved upon the waters of
the evaporating cumulous of
the Amorphous Wanderers.
