The Prodigality Of Causality
|The Prodigality Of Causality|

|This is the way the world begins,|
Not with a whimper but a bang.
Screams careening against the air
Proving that chaos kills.
What made him decide to do this?
Fear stricken across a face
Echoes through an eternity.
Panic thrashes its way around,
Searching frantically for any escape.
Is this how it looked to him in the mirror of his mindís eye?
A body crumpled on the ground
But more soon will join it.
A last light which once burned bright
Lays extinguished in the cold.
Did he take pleasure in pervading the innocent?
Despair runs rampant
As the onslaught continues.
Then relief is felt at last
When a final sound is heard.
Is this how he wanted his life to end?
Nothing more than a bang and a whimper
Yet it all might have been so much simpler;
If only the two could become reversed
So the last shot instead had been the first.
