The Gatekeepers Demise

A rumbling began from the abyss.
a slow bubbling toward revelation
and a fruition of incongruity.

The gatekeepers held steadfastly
wrestling to impede the swell of subterfuge
from overflowing into stark reality.

As momentum gained the sound was plain.
“Everything hidden will be revealed.”
“Everything hidden will be revealed.”

The steam arose and the horses reared.
Men fell one by one into the insidious lava
of Epicurus’s tirade against his imposters.

As momentum gained the sound was plain
“Everything hidden will be revealed.”
“Everything hidden will be revealed.”

When they opened their mouths to speak
each vomited the only words they knew.
But they fell on ears deaf to their deceit.

The rolling thunderous melting rock
covered the Dome and to those it sought
each was turned to thick, hardened stone.

Broken into pieces too small to reassemble
it was demise for those who tried so hard
to cover their sins for far too long.

As the flow diminishedย  momentum waned.
The crowds abated for the swamp was drained.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! The swamp was drained.

In the midst of a new day dawning the sound was plain,
“Everything hidden has been revealed.”
“Everything hidden has been revealed.”
