Y Not all cried: man’s finest hour

Not all cried: man’s finest hour

Wind                                                            stops.                                     not a

bird.

all                                                             was quiet

as                         if by magic,                                                             people

ran                         here,

there

praying                         to gods             they

had abandoned

running

screaming

sweating

cursing

pick                         up                         strangers

old men

old women

the young

ALL

they

had                                     one goal:

TO LIVE.

Smoke, smoke                                                                                                 everywhere

toxic gases                                                             eating                                     the air

one                                                                         fell, foaming                         at the mouth

another                                                             stumbled

grabbing                         a corpse.

NOISE!

everywhere                                                                                                 No where

fingernails                                                             scraping                         wood, steel

THIS                                                                         is                                     what humanity

has                                     wrought!

THIS                                                                         IS                                     their judgement

day!

their                                                             opportunity to see                   the other side

of the mountain

This                                                                         is                                     the SIMULATION to

“End all”

this                                                                         is/was                                     Hiroshima

Berlin

Baghdad

Babylon

New York!

But, not all cried…

THIS WAS MAN’S FINEST HOUR!!
