Armageddon Next


The chess board set
Each piece in place
The players sit
Face to face
A duel of death
This match of Gods
With worthy stakes
And even odds
A Rook is taken and for this piece
A far distant Galaxy is gone
Universe by Universe will follow
Before this game is won
The tension is high for
The prize is great
The ultimate prize
For checkmate
The right to direct Creation
At the next big bang
The end game approaches
And victory hangs
For one long second
Until the move is seen
To bring mate
The canvass swept clean
Utter stillness
And quickly then
Creation inexorably starts
Once again
The chess set boxed
The board packed away
Until needed for the next
Armageddon Day
