Silently the danger swiftly approached
gathered speed as it careered onward
many eyes through telescopes observed
could see the object coming this way
on Earth humans continued their folly
disbelieving of what could soon occur
others searched for provisions to hoard
merciless violence then soured!
Too many predictions were unfounded
so few thought it would ever be
nothing would change greed still ruled
there could be nowhere for us to flee
darkness despair the disbelief grew
death and horror the only view!
No Fresh air sun or sweet singing birds
happy children innocently playing
certain a meteorite was going to collide
ending in terror mankind’s very existence
written its said as an ancient prophecy
as it hurled closer to the earths surface
the few hid in deep secure habitation
no room for most of the population!
By a miracle or very poor calculations
it passed by earth at close proximity
a warning how fragile the balance of life
hurtling onward in spaces vast highway
order restored the chaos forgotten
mankind carried on just as rotten!
Another chance given for humans to repent
or short reprieve from an inevitable event!
