War Is Coming revision 2

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?

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.
