8 Zeros

8 Zeros

There are dinosaurs inside the rain and the mist
their bones cast shadows on a museum wall.
Muhammad and Jesus have ceased to exist.
The cities are silent after the fall.
Buildings capsize and sink in the loam.
Stalactites drip in a shopping mall.
The rain washes statues to stone.
Cathedrals are caverns, forests are hearth
the bogsoil is drowned with glass and chrome,
the moss slowly reclaims the earth.

It had been reset by the US military, who believed a code authorised and typed in by the President would slow down their capabilities).
