The End Begins, Tonight

The shades of men stalked, malevolent, fearless, dragging monster-shadows behind them through the broken city.

 

A shadow’s dance, macabre, hollow echoes of men, chasing riotous beneath the cloud-cloaked sunlight.

 

They walked, ignored by navy-blue, black, grey sea of suits, Ignored by people too busy with the profane mundanity of the day-to-day to witness the holy war unfolding in the streets.

 

The shadow-men stalk the streets, while men of god lurk before broken altars, hidden away in crypts and their sepulchres, ignoring the clarion-call echoing, unheard, from the heavens.

 

The shadow-men stalk the streets, and the preachers’ messages go unheeded.

 

“The end is nigh! The end is nigh!”

 

The end begins, tonight.

    I love it. Is that your own drawing too? Brilliant.

    Very well written! I like the voice and the drawing..

  3. Unfortunately the drawing is not my own (no drawing talent here.) For some reason WordPress is eating my attributions – the image is by Timitzer, and I found it on the Wikipedia page for “Midnight Man”
