Apocalyptic Journey by Nomar Knight

Apocalyptic Journey by Nomar Knight

Apocalyptic Journey
By Nomar Knight

It's the end of the world
I say to all who pass by
Some ignore me
Others cast dirty looks
But most can't hear my words

It's the end of the world
Corruption breeds discontent
Thrones of greed alienate the masses
A wave of uprisings topple regimes
Mass hunger is no longer tolerated

It's the end of the world
When the earth groans and shakes
Mother nature objects to neglect
Abuse and murder an epidemic
Clergy and politicians slime crime

It's the end of the world
Families break and hate
Food's wasted then tainted
Fornication breathes without prejudice
People killed for who they are

It's the end of the world
When all hope is lost
Communication dies asunder
Common sense loses to nonsense
Education loses its mind

It's the end of the world
If we can't care for our planet
And find common ground
Stop war and love one another
We'll all be doomed

A Knight Chills poem.


  1. great call to action...as you have identified many of the things that ail our world....

  2. Common sense loses to nonsense.. is my fav line in this poem...happens more and more it seems... dark picture you paint and i too like the call for action in your last stanza

  3. They can't hear your words, because it is inconvenient :)
    My favourite is the first stanza, it has a quiet intensity. My favourite lines: Fornication... and Common sense...

  4. Hi Nomar

    Sustainability has been on my thoughts since ages and your verse brings it out so beautifully..
