Hallowed grounds will be broken;
monuments hurled down, trodden underfoot.
Skies will darken and blood flow
freely like rampant rivers busting
broken banks and flooding all;
none shall be left untainted.
Purity will flee, seeking glorious
shrines and sanctuary elsewhere, like
always, and leave behind those
who must adapt and somehow
make whole once more this
ruination. Once attained though, then
shall purity and goodness return
to reclaim their abandoned inheritance.
But they will not be
welcomed back with open arms,
and wars once more will
wearily ensue as purity refuses
to believe what is so
evident now to the survivors.
For Purity tainted is merely
Corruption, and therefore known as
existence. Though who among the
elite will openly subscribe or
admit that and thus acknowledge
their error and therefore blame?
