The Day the Earth Stood Still (1/19/19)
The mountains crumbled The rain downpoured Levees overspilled Volcanoes rumbled Tsunamis roared The day the Earth stood still The sky grew dark Lava flowed Shrieks were loud and shrill The terror stark No sunlight showed The day the Earth stood still A state of shock When I got the call To find out he’d been killed A mental block Nothing at all The day the Earth stood still Copyright © 2022 Brandon Ellrich
