Default The End is Near

The end is near,
as we have all heard,
it states in plain text,
it's the dawn of our age,

we will all know,
by the shaking of the earth,
we will all know,
we will see his gracious work,

we won't have the work done,
by any false deities,
the ones who were sent,
from the lord of the underworld,

and so it goes, we wait,
and we bravely await,
for that precious day,
behind our nuclear missiles,

I'm not shaking, this,
isn't what you think,
I do not fear man,
I am only in fear of God,

Satan is coming,
he's trying to beat you to the punch,
come on God, come on God,
we're patiently waiting,

The result will be the same,
and we will die either way,
but I want you to kill me God,
and see that woman above,

I want to see her golden harp,
plucking the heart strings,
and enforcing what I knew all along,
that I was right and they were wrong

Religous themes suck, and sound really corny in songs. Sad fact. Or not so sad.

Too bad it's a poem, although I would have changed it's classification to anything different just to be a jerk to you. ha ha

BTW, it's a satire, which means it's not to be taken literally like it's a first person narrative. It's rather a second person view of the hypocritical masses who claim to welcome the end in a religious sense, and yet shriek in horror at the thought of nuclear war and terrorism.
It's much like a Maynard James Keenan song, like Bottom off of Undertow, where he says, 'weakness keeps me alive, hungerness keeps me alive, guilt keeps me alive at the bottom.' It's not to be taken literally, but through the eyes of a junkie, or a codependent person. Of course, I realize you don't like Maynard, but I do.

This was terrible. It didn't sound like satire at all. It just sounded like really bad poetry. Also, "and so it goes, we wait, and we bravely await," < Seriously? I mean, REALLY?

Too bad it's a poem, although I would have changed it's classification to anything different just to be a jerk to you. ha ha < You're a moron.

I know what satire means but I don't see where it applies in this case unless you're doing a satire of bad poetry by a 12 year old goth.
