War of the Worlds

War of the Worlds
9" x 12" acrylic on canvas panel


The last rites
of devious materialist persuasion 
beckon the weak with crooning voices
of avarice and acquisition
from galactic caves
of desperate thought

We are entering The Reckoning,
but remain unaware
until it manifests 
in plagues and calamities 
to show us 
that we cannot survive
on our possessions alone.
