Battle The Beast; William M. Cooper

The night came quicker than usual, and it caught me by surprise
Before I found some shelter, the blackness dimmed my eyes

My panicked heart was pounding, my legs instinctively took flight
I aimlessly ran in circles, in the horror of blackest night

In the distance I could hear it, the sounds of a terrible beast
I could hear its claws scratching, I could see the flash of its teeth

There was no way to outrun it, for it traveled on all fours
So, left with just one prospect, I turned and faced the noise

The blade I held: had a faint sparkle, illumined from distant stars
The beast knew I would use it, as it stalked me from afar

My wait drug on for eternity, as I firmly stood my ground
But soon it would be over, for I heard approaching sounds

Throughout my life, I purposefully planned, to never travel by night
It was the only way to miss the beast, and avoid a deadly fight

Yet, life has a sense of justice, not willing to let me cheat those plans
From facing the beast who stalks me, from facing what haunts a man

A silhouette sprang out of the blackness, striking hard the first blow
I volleyed back with the tip of my blade, causing the beast to moan

Collapsing together, mortally wounded, the dawn began to break
I saw the beast that had attacked me, it was myself, in whom, I faced

  1. ”Can you imagine what will happen if Los Angeles is hit with a 9.0 quake, New York City is destroyed by a terrorist-planted atomic bomb, World War III breaks out in the Middle East, the banks and the stock markets collapse, Extraterrestrials land on the White House lawn, food disappears from the markets, some people disappear, the Messiah presents himself to the world, and all in a very short period of time ? Can you imagine ? The world power structure can, and will if necessary, make some or all of those things happen to bring about the New World Order.”
