A Day of Tribulation is Coming

The bank president lies in a pool of blood
with a bullet in his head
because he wouldn’t give up the combination.
Over on the other side of town
a mother weeps because her baby is dead
and she only has memories left in her mind
of watching her little child growing.

The bread lines go down the street
so far that you cannot see the end.
The soup kitchens turn people away
because the kettles are empty.

A mad man pushes a red button
releasing a holocaust onto the world.
He smiles at the faces of the dying.
A little girl sitting on her father’s knee
can’t stop the tears of blood she’s crying.

I wake up in my sweat soaked bed,
the fear of my nightmare
still walks around in my head.
As I wait for the sun to awaken
I wonder if the morning will bring
the cold day of tribulation.

A man kills his wife and his little child
then takes his own life
because he can’t face his dreams anymore
and reality weighs to heavy on him.
As his cruel life slips away
he is glad he won’t have to face
the cold day of tribulation.

The day of tribulation is coming.
It’s just round the corner from you.
So take all the money you can from the bank
and spend it before it is worthless.

The bank president lies in a pool of blood
with a bullet in his head
because he wouldn’t give up the combination.

  1. I really like this one. It is really sad and true to life. There are so many terrible things happening in the world. The bank president should have given up the combination I guess. But, he was protecting many people in the process. You’ve got so many possible storylines for novels in there. I’ve been weeding in my garden today. What an awful mess! I’m going to write a hub about it on hubpages soon A well written poem.
