looking out at the dark

at times you want to see the fire sweep
over all the city cleansing as it goes
at others you want the eternal snows
to cover up the towers many feet deep
across the ruins let the monsters creep
as cold rain falls and the great river flows
let nature deliver her least subtle blows
the time has come when all should sleep
but no that would not be the proper way
to punish all the evil things that walk
and claim the human shield for all their deeds
you hope instead for one bright shining day

when rightful action will replace the talk
and all that's done will meet the deepest needs
