Armageddon Ticking

                                              Overcrowded Earth, Manila

Armageddon in human hands released,
     piece by piece ticking with the clock;
innocence denied, sanity defied
     to the final shock.

Time capsules all into infinity:
     pleasure and pain, evil and goodness -
all that is on planet earth,
     into emptiness.

It's Sodom revived, so with the Flood
     and Vesuvius a thousand times;
and in war none but the innocent
     is the price.

And the god in man and man in God
     in futile struggle comes to end
the earth shall be no longer,
      so with a heaven.

Fabled paradise shall be no more,
     lost and regained, and finally gone;
Then a new world shall rise - perhaps
     without man. ~
