08-08-12 End of the World as We Know It #Poetry @clynnbud1

This is the eight link in the ongoing poetry chain between clynnbud1 and myself. The rules are simple. you must use the last line of the previous poems your first line. We have no set limit of how many poems we will do, instead we will keep going till we get tired.

End of the World as We Know It
(line in italics is from previous poem)

The folly of us.
contained and concluded
apocalypse; we endured;
gnashing teeth
of beasts,
now boyhood nightmares.
the world a blank easel
for society to paint.
the undead dwindling
under stormy skies,
an omen.
foolishness blinds us;
from embers of a revolution
stoked by greed.
