the believers

the believers

Its entrance to this world was heralded
By ominous bolts of lightning
That shocked the starlit sky
From luminescence to gloom,
Stirring creatures of the night
To scurry for the sanctuary of secret caverns,
Hidden in plain sight
Among ageless mangroves,
Witnesses of many a storm
But never one so sinister.

Surely some unnatural phenomenon was imminent...
Surely some otherworldly mystery would soon unfold,
Giving credence to claims of eccentrics,
Castigated by cynics as outlandish nuts
And oddball believers of the bizarre.

But there it stood,
Some ten feet tall,
Its glowing green body suspended like Saturn in mid-air
On concentric circles of flashing lasers
That seared the tips of tall oaks and evergreens,
Slicing bold barks with relative ease,
Melting mountains into igneous lava streams,
Carving craters to caress the corpses of cynics
Who defied the creatures’ intuition
And dismissed the preachers’ premonition,
As unfounded.

But the believers would have the ultimate laugh
As golden trumpets sounded
And fire and brimstone fell from the starless sky
Through which they ascended unscathed
To reap the eternal rewards of faith,
Leaving the cynical to commiserate in cavernous crypts
And contemplate what might have been
Had they simply believed…
