When Judgement Comes

To be totally honest, this poem bewilders me. I have no idea where the inspiration for it, had come. The concept is clearly biblical, but the motivation to formulate it, (while I am very proud of it) was certainly not, of “Divine Intervention.” 

Your palaces will fade away,

ice castles, too, shall melt.

When judgement comes, that final day,

and the wrath of God, is felt.

 

The kingdoms of the earth, will pass,

and lay, in dust and ruin.

And their monarchs, then be cast,

into the depths, of Hades womb.

 

Their golden crowns, will have no worth,

and their jewels, no more, shall gleam.

And then the privilege, of the birth,

will echo back, the mother’s scream.

 

Yes, your palaces will fade away,

ice castles, too, shall melt.

When judgement comes, that final day,

and the wrath of God, is felt.

 

No conjurors, or wizards save,

the royal bloods, from fate.

The manor lords, will then be slaves,

and receive their due, of hate.

 

The serf will rise, into his place,

and, seize the throne, at last.

While the lords and ladies, hide their face,

and deny to all, their past.

 

Yes, their palaces will fade away,

ice castles, too, shall melt.

When judgement comes, that final day,

and the wrath of God, is felt.

 

Then banished, from the righteous realm,

they then, must learn the truth.

 When judgement comes, to overwhelm.

it bears, all the needed proof.

 

The innards, of the heart and soul,

will be bared, for all to see.

And not one secret, held in fold,

as they face, the hanging tree.

 

Their palaces, now fade away,

ice castles, too, shall melt.

Now, judgement comes, this final day,

and the wrath of God, be felt.
