Armageddon


the arsenal of human bite marks
a desperate quality
healthy parents want better guns
for their children
the soldiers beseeching godless moral games
rekindling the spectacular skirmishes
of lethal luck
the police avoided the intense behavior
of the warlike children
acknowledging the dark smile cast by
the threatening sister of life
the intense fire shrine of girlfriends ablaze
perpetuates the unflappable name of dawn
the warning bell of peace tolls
suddenly there is silence

    Son of Sam Son of Sam David Berkowitz The day of Berkowitz\'s arrest, Sergeant Joseph Coffey was called in to interview him. Calmly and candidly, David told him about each of the shootings. When the interview was over there was no doubt that Berkowitz was the Son of Sam. The details that he supplied about each assault were bits of information that only the killer would know. At the end of the session, Berkowitz politely wished him "good night." Coffey was amazed by Berkowitz. "When I first walke
  • Shakespeares Essay
    Shakespeares Essay Alan Massy-Shakespeare\'s plays speak "to us today with an extraordinary and an unfailing immediacy." There are themes in the play that are relevant to life today such as when mans social, political and ethical worlds are out of balance. This lack of balance is symbolized by a disjunction in his own health and in nature. In other words natural illnesses or occurrences are symbolic of the illness in his thinking. This happens today and is also illustrated in Shakespeare\'s Haml

The heath must be significant in terms of the themes and the continue progress of the novel. The author of the novel, Thomas Hardy, made the heath so significant to the point that it can be look upon as a character like any other in the novel. The heath’s constant correlation with the plot and its “personality” even transformed it into the major antagonis

    atom bomb When the atomic bomb went off over Hiroshima on Aug. 6th, 1945, 70,000 lives were ended in a flash. To the American people who were weary from the long and brutal war, such a drastic measure seemed a necessary, even righteous way to end the madness that was World War II. However, the madness had just begun. That August morning was the day that heralded the dawn of the nuclear age, and with it came more than just the loss of lives. According to Archibald MacLeish, a U.S. poet, "What hap
  • 1960s
    1960s The 1960’s were a time of major political and social change. These changes were primarily fuelled by the youth of the time. Their parents had come from life in both the great depression of the 1930’s as well as World War II, and were on a whole more conservative than their children, a fact the younger generation did not like. In the early 60’s the electronic media (Television and radio) became an important communication tool, as opposed to the largely print based media of previous decades.

As the momentum toward equality is clearly evident in the black race’s struggle, the question of where (or when) this rage will subside (if ever) remains unanswered. In examining black rage, four distinct periods of American history should be con

    W Civ Final Frank 1 Throughout the late tenth century in Scandinavia, many societies were adversely affected by the spread of Christianity. The Vikings were traditionally a pagan community believing in many gods and heathen rituals, such as human and material sacrifice.

Some converted from their heathen ways by choice and others were forced to except these ideas or be killed by o

    CK Wiliams and Ted Hughes An Overview and Assessment There are few positive views of life to be found in C.K. Williams’ The Vigil. His poetry does not present a necessarily negative life-view, but rather sees the world as most others do. He calls out commonplace people, places, and times in the same manner that most of the rest of us do, despite how dark it may seem. Williams uses a lot of punctuation in his poetry. His sentences, although full of commas and semicolons, flow smoothly from line
