Imagining End of the World




I saw the four horsemen of the apocalypse

Beckoning me to join them on their midnight ride

Death, pestilence, plague and war



They were ready to ride into the sunset

Spreading their hate with them



As they led the world to its foretold doom

The end days were approaching they told me

And their time was near



I begged them to hold off

To give us more time

To work things out



They laughed and said

Time waits for no one



We have a divine plan to work out

You have been warned before

And will be warned again and again



But soon it will be time

And we must do our duty



To bring an end to this benighted world

And fulfill our destiny

And yours



But for now

We will let you sleep



And let you prepare yourself

For the time is near



The end of the world is coming

It is later than you think



Soon soon the antichrist will come

Uniting the world



And leading the battles too come

Before the end of the world





And mankind ceases to exist

Just dust in the wind



Of a dead planet

In a forgotten corner of an uncaring universe

All part of Godís plan
