Rainbows Burning

This isn’t a story
it’s a prophecy
we called it back then
after Atlantis perished
during the dark ages
when Rome fell
when the Tsar was born
when Hiroshima melted
we were gonna fuck it up
someone predicted it
or was it the Bible?
they didn’t say we would burn
through the ozone
or machete the fins
off all the great whites
to help keep erections
or stab babies sucked out of the womb
this wasn’t written in the stars
but burn the mother fucker down to
the ground

could have been scrolled
in Latin
or some type of ancient hieroglyphics
painted in blood onto a cave wall
as all great colonies fail
at some point or another because of
natural disasters or
we spray the
the rainbow down
with diesel
light it up into oblivion
the fallout will penetrate
some clean and virgin planet
ruin that one too
