A New Moon is Arising by John (“Jake”) Cosmos Aller

A new moon is arising
Above the sky scrapers of the wasted cities

Up above the walled in cities
And the gilded ghettoes

And the fancy peacocks
And the purple clouds of stoned people

Up above the mountains
As high as the eagle can fly the name

The name is death
At last we have met our master

And He will show no mercy to us
As he lays down noxious gas

Divine justice
As the winds spread the gas
And all humanity dies
