    Apocalypse
    As I opened my eyes, the day rushed in
    how sunny and beautiful and devoid of sin
    Lawnmowers running, children's voices at play
    and a breeze off the coast this weekend Saturday
    I waved at my neighbors, Sam, Ernie and Mack
    They busied with yardwork but smiled and waved back
    I looked for my car keys, the cupboard was bare
    But what was this something I sensed in the air?

    An eerie,gut wrenching thickness of black
    and that's when I heard it, a lightning crack
    I raised my head, all neighbors did too
    Our attention was riveted, stuck like glue.
    The Sun did darken, the moon turned red
    An immense gate appeared, scraping sky with dread.
    Everyone was silent, not knowing what to say
    Who thought such a Saturday would be Judgement Day.

    The gate blasted open as if punched with a fist
    thru its smoke rode the First Horseman of the Apocalypse
    wearing a Crown with a Bow in his hand
    on a white horse, Jupiter, for the conquering of Man.

    We all began scattering from a sight like this
    now rode the Second Horseman of the Apocalypse
    In his hand a great Sword to take Peace from the Earth
    on a red horse,Juno, the second lightning burst

    Past the panic, confusion and fear in our midst
    did gallop the Third Horseman of the Apocalypse
    on a black horse,Neptune, Balance Scales in his hand
    for the Judgement and Flooding of Man and his Land

    The Fourth Horseman, Death, on Vesta, a pale horse
    charged thru the gate on his predetermined course
    holding up a hand with a bony finger slim
    beckoning Hell's Hordes to come out and follow him

    All Seven Seals broken, their lightning cracks loud
    A mighty Angel descended, clothed in a mighty cloud
    with feet and legs of fire, one on land, one on sea
    and seven angels with trumpets, a celestial symphony
    Man profaned God's Wisdom by not doing what he oughta
    now the Beast with seven heads comes rising from the water
    with ten horns sharp and a wet body cold
    to devour and swallow the Souls of Man whole.

    If through twilight of evening or bright light of day
    you hear lightning and hoofbeats coming your way
    It's Judgement Hour, just drop to your knees
    praying "For all my bad sins, God forgive me please" HH
