The Kingdom This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
See here now,
these are the
wheatfields of Kansas:
sanctuary from delirium.
Where every scarecrow
is fully armed
with bayonet and
rifle to protect
his newfound brain.
These dusty men
patrol the highways,
ever watchful for
tornadoes and witches.
This is the
domain of the
Lord of Ruin,
whose eyes are
hazel from insanity

Your fortune teller
Had it wrong
This
is the way
the world ends.

Bang.

Hahaha, I really liked the way you explained that.
The end threw me off when it took a different direction, but it still sounded cool. Made me smile.
