THE BURNING SEASON
By Lazola Pambo 

 

 

Winter is sentenced

into a silent cataclysm

when the yellow-eyed chariots

rage upon humanity

a battalion of immortal squadron

none of us have ever seen

 

The last anniversary of the universe

illuminated by a catharsis

the burning season has awoken

oh what a gothic sight

hearing bones rattle from the grave

 

See the monstrous flame

reeling twenty seven heated rods

which exterminate order

the ocean waves are frozen

into volcanic Viking swords

that possess meltdown

 

We felt the burning season

take ambush of our lives

churches, houses, schools and all

only trace they left behind

the indoctrination of words

and not the Ten Commandments

but Jove Chappell…

The Prince of Hell!
