Woe Unto The Earth by Olaoba Tomiwa

The sounds of chariots of fire
Hastily rushed into the sounds of thunders.
Two lights collided, and
Spelled a pathway for a crystal water.

Melodies of sorrowful songs
Played in the miserable atmosphere.
Contradiction and confusion,
Were the new contesting governors for the dear earth.

The rage of rain and volcano,
And the rage of earthquake
Made a beautiful sunny day
Turned black and white.

‘Woe unto those who live on earth!
For today are the sons of God carried away.
Make haste!
Let the plagues destroy the sons of perdition.
