Forced from her cloistered life
she walked on the street
for the first time in her life
after the quake.
“Is it, the beginning of the end
of the Goddess reign?”
The living Goddess just smiled
and walked on and on.
Those smiles changed completely
the way we see our future and extol our past.
The earth begins to tremble.
The buildings begin to sway.
Is it, the beginning of the end
of the mankind reign on earth?
We may as a species, pass out, too.
The earth keeps finding something new.
