The Intruder


welcome to earth

population

of kings

a world of luxury

forbidden

palaces

of power

declaring war

on nature

an advancing army

unguarded walls

a facade

covering up

the burn

whitewashed

and sealed

more effective

impenetrable

but there is

an

intruder

Empty Promises


all that could prove

to be

potential

shaken down

lost

tilted over

a violent quake

agonizingly slow

unto dust

a pile of rubble

the descendents

just may

beat the odds

take their chances

no

guarantees
