the flash of light

i sit and stare
out the window
knowing where they are
i wait to see
the columns rising
climbing near and far

i check the news
i wait for you
the notice of pending disaster
the flash of light
the blinding sight
sending us ever after

from water to steam
from flesh to ash
we will finally become
cities to fields
the melting steel
humanity will be done

no hope left
no fucks to give
i wait for our cancer to die
no other way
we need to pay
no need for us to cry

light up the night
send us away
in a moment
we all will pay
