Leonardo’s Prophecy


Ever-fascinated by water’s movement,
Leonardo saw mankind’s end
Through a Deluge,
Employing his twisted and rounded lines,
Showing our helplessness in a merciless time,
More than five hundred years ago.

I’d say the Earth ends not
As Leonardo or the Bible foretold.
But as my skin is itchy and sticky and hot,
I’d say the force of fire would be none to hold.

With an atmosphere laid bare
We’d be blinded and burned,
Scurrying underground like hares,
But the Sun shall have us churned,
Chasing us to the ends of our universe
Not a chance for another world to traverse
