Hallowed grounds will be broken;
monuments hurled down, trodden underfoot.
The skies will darken and blood
will flow like rampant rivers
bursting 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
survive this awful mess and
make whole once more this
ruination. And when attained, then
will purity, justice and goodness
return to reclaim their inheritance.
But there will be dissension
unless somehow an understanding can
be reached for Purity tainted is
only Corruption and therefore existence.
And who subscribes to that?
