From the recording The Last Twilight

I wrote this and posted it on Facebook.  The next morning I was messaged by my friend Raj who told me he had shared it on his Astronomy Group page and had watched it go 'viral' in Europe over night.  


The Last Twilight
In the last twilight
Of once Eden earth
Let us bear witness
Each one in his turn
Sift through the ashes
Of all that's destroyed 
And witness the twilight
Of man's final voyage
There's nothing new
Not under the sun
No place left to raid
The conquest is done
No more new worlds
They've all be explored
Exploited, polluted
And tortured by war
While people of faith
Uncertain or none 
Sense that the twilight
Of mankind has come
Repeat 1st two verses
Sometimes I wonder
Why I and my friends
Were born in the Twilight
To witness the end
