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

A blemish that has
long marred since
the days of

Noah’s
Ark.

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
verse,

An auspicious millennium
or technology’s
mirth,

It will be at the hands
of each newborn youth −

Choosing between
the hell of now or a
paradise forsook.
