World War Three?

Birds fly low
they seem to know
that The End is nigh
The seed is sown
the harvest known
no need to question why
The tide is near
the time is here
this no one can deny
None too soon
earth and moon
tumble into sky
The deadly breach
is now in reach
we have lived a lie
A planet fair
we now forswear
she must watch us die
Does not matter
how we scatter
none to heed our cry
We who dare
with conscience bare
have rent the sacred tie
There is reason
to every season
but this no one can descry
Sheer hubris driven
all unforgiven
doom stares us in the eye
No dreams to sell
no wishing well
there’s no one left to buy
When in the heart
the fires start
’tis time to say goodbye
They who Twice Before
and still want more
in hubris are wrung high
Know who They are
who love Endless War
and very heavens do defy
Yes know who They are
who worship war
for they have no alibi

When questioned why
by the genii
what will they reply?
