End Times of Ignorance

Don't forget to listen to a reading of the poem and discover the backstory behind the topics toward the end!

Quaked is the pearly
kingdom by the land’s
oldest scar –

A blemish that has
long marred since
the days of


Wisdom can no
longer be

an aversion
or an
allergy –

That humanity,
slaps aside
with each and
every prayer −

Wishing to be blessed
with purses of coin rather

than enlightenment’s billionaire.

No − the death of ignorance
will not be through

Weighty words or the
Sunday School

An auspicious millennium
or technology’s

It will be at the hands
of each newborn youth −

Choosing between
the hell of now or a
paradise forsook.
