Last Call

Open the seal, seal the gulf, seal the doom,
Send your jets across the sand you cleared
Before you could open the earth to scorch
It. Let fly the missiles and bombs against
Your own desperate flow of machine blood,
The predestined end of your long death wish.
 
Ignite your sand with the hot-mirrored flames
Rising tall from all your horsefly machines.
Cheer as your tankers sink amid seas of flame,
Purge your kings and your false promised lands,
See them shatter to atoms amid the smoke.
 
You scoured this desert long ages before,
Blasted its trees and waters to memory myth.
All for the logic of this final day.
And now howl your last curse as your minds melt,
Your numerology zaps to zero,
All your nerves splinter and circuit short,
Your blood spills on the sand and bursts into flame,
Your metal flesh staggers and stops,
Your congealed, sculpted blood flickers and dies,
Your masses cry in dismay, you exult,
Your last barrel of blood fires your last hiss,
You add your last spark to the infinite fire.
 
The fire burned a thousand years in your mind;
Today you release heat once and for all.
And the torch nightmare of blazing night skies
Begins to end.
 
The fire of your old sun
Reverses phase to the fire of sunrise.
Earth will resume its life in the new sun,
For at last the undead
From exhumed fires of a long-dead sun
Will die forever at last.
