Treasure Island

Owain Glyn


The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse 1 pestilence


I am pestilence!
A guardian of this earth
I am an Enforcer!
You will not see me.
I ride my steed upon the wind.
I lurk in putrid pools,
Of your creation.
I sleep in river beds,
Alongside the chemicals
You have discarded.
I roam the seas
Through your filth!
I shall send my cousins,
Plague and virus
Among you.
I will let loose
My beloved daughter,
Epidemic,
To visit hell upon you.
You, who have desecrated my treasured soil.
My brothers, War, Famine and Death
Will be my companions.
We shall scourge the earth
Of your presence.
I am near, so near,
Look over your shoulder,
Beware! !
You may not see me now,
But i am there!
Silent....Waiting....

    A great series to enliven the senses and awaken the dreamers from their mesmeric state of apathy over current world conditions... I love this series... Take heed technocratic imperialists...! ! ! (Report) Reply

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
