Black Stars Rise

You know the end is near when

The toothless prophet no longer sounds mad

And the man in the suit stands to listen

And the puppets on television see their strings

And the woman in her dress won’t leave her home

And the kids stalks the streets like wild dogs

And the elderly become a burden

And the wealthy lock themselves in their castles

And governments fall

And economies crumble

And the sun parches barren soil

And the wind blows hot as a pyre

And soft rains will not come

And it is the day

And it is the hour

And the sheep are on the right

And the goats are on the left

And the tatterdemalion king sits the throne

And the red death holds sway over all

And R’lyeh is on every tongue

And Carcosa is in every home

And black stars rise.
