I saw the end

Woven together the bits fell into the stream traveling with a momentum no longer its own 

The vision is dire as it travels the stream turns to scarlet 

And death follows lapping first at the banks then all animal and man who drinks from it.

It spreads like cancer devouring the ignorant 

The mighty sea is powerless as it infuses itself 

Water the lock of all lands  entraps us all 

Even the rain is acid 

The stars called out its beginning 

The time has come

And of those who fall have but one hope

One brilliant light.

And still they ignore it.

lovely, i think my favorite

lovely, i think my favorite part is about how the water locks all land... it makes me think of the first explorers who likely travelled the globe thinking the same thing.
