Grave-site of the People

Here lies the last of humanity
Here lies the mortal souls
The grave-site of no humility
The dying still grasped at jewels

Here lies the end of the world
Here lies the dying flame
The rulers of men gave their apologies
But they destroyed us all in vain

Here lies the clouds of radioactive dust
Here lies no tomorrow
It came the touch of a button
There was not time for sorrow

Here lies the mess we've left
All in a bang and flash
The screams fell on deafened ears
Now we're all just smoke and ash
