If you see the sky burning,
I'd say the world's turning,
But only because of momentum.
The monsters are crawling,
Their horror appalling,
Consuming our guilt for their dinner.
As his failing crops wither
See Farmer Giles dither,
Sharpening his scythe for faux-harvest.
With open mouths pushing,
And greedy clerks shushing,
The hungry are holding out bowls.
Undertakers are taking
The bread they are making
To banks that are bust at the seams.
The earth is now bulging
And growth is divulging
The life back into this planet.
And the sky is now crying
From all of us dying
But at least it's all over the scorch.
