Figure D20 TELOS

From this small fire, to an end of days.
If universal growth had been subdued
By gravity, to fall back in a blaze,
Would time reverse? Picture a vision crude,
Men rising from their graves and puking food.
Yet may such simple fancy run amiss.
The GREAT RETURN, our unity renewed,
May bring not fiery doom, but synthesis,
A richer world. No meagre consolation, this.
