Poetry: Words Started This Apocalypse.

WORDS STARTED THIS APOCALYPSE

infantile selfishness & an insatiable curiosity
caused the fall of man
lame monkeys, they fall to the same vices
Words foretold of the apocalypse
but ears were stoppered with wax & self conceit
not when embalmers painted the pyramids
and cast golden runes as odes to the slain
Heads swung away from the gates of Ashteroth
and her beasts of fantasy & bas-relief
they carried more fearsome monsters within
they engorged themselves with delphic prophecies
subsumed its delirious smoke & exhaled it unheeded
Olympus fell, with it Greece and Rome
still they sat, stone hearted
Red and Black and Saffron Skin
soiled by the Englishman's invasion
the warning and wards of forebears
forsaken for lures of looking glass & tinder & shell
the announcer's anguished commentary
dirge for fireworks abloom from the Challenger
still Orwell's '84 gathers dust on shelf
all words did was quicken the tragedy
rouse the stampede off the cliff


Words started this apocalypse
quips uttered in ear shot
like a measure set in quicksand
stones in trough rising thoughts to the surface
Words foretold this apocalypse
prophecies in the guise of passing observation
the depths to which they resonate underestimated
jagged shards transmuted from China once whole
Simmering that leaves a charred, black heart
gashes on thigh and arm dripping into the dark
vicious slurs slung thoughtlessly at an easy target
the incendiary that lights the hidden charge
horror is the aftermath
as the implosion spreads outward
consuming others in this final act of immolation
hindsight is glaring on his scarred flesh
and journals scrawled over with apathy
Words started this apocalypse
they conceived and nurtured it
encouraged and then made jest of it
sheltered it in pretty rhetoric until it festered
and when it grew rotten, urged it to its death
and words will analyse it
In startling detail will they immortalise it
and indifference will be the grave under which it's buried.

My husband was so lovely and caring after 3years of marriage he was seriously ill and the doctor confirm and said he has a kidney infection that he needed a kidney donor, that was how I start searching for who can help, doctor has given me a periodic hour that he will live just 25hours left, that was how I ask the doctor if I can be of help to my husband that was how he carried out the text, the confirming was successful, I was now having this taught that since 3 years now we got married I have not be able to get pregnant can I be able to get bring again? That was the question I ask the doctor, he never answer his response was did you want to lost your husband? I immediately reply no I can't afford to lose him. After the operation my husband came back to live and was healthy I was also ok with the instruction given to me by the doctor, after 3months my husband came home with another lady telling me, that is our new wife that will give us kids and takecare of us, that was how I was confused and started crying all day, that was how my husband ran away with his new wife clearable.
