While fuckin’ around on the net I ended up following a metaphor of chaos and whirlwinds and found some sweet lyrics. I am not a great one for poetry, but a good scotch in hand will help.
Here is one take on this theme that I found on the Christian survivalist site Survival blog (https://survivalblog.com/the-new-dawn-approaches-by-w-g/)
Whirlwinds of Chaos
Embrace the whirlwinds of chaos
Winds of undying destruction
The will to crush and conquer
Far greater than the fear of death/failure
Harness the fire of hatred (controlled burn)
To forge paths unknown
From your path of defiance
The ultimate fruits of labor are born….
The new dawn approaches.
It has a nice kind of Nietzschean flavor to it, but I doubt that the author intended that.
Then I found some badass lyric “Whirlwinds of Chaotic Carnage,”
from the album Fatal Power of Death (2013), by the death metal ban Beyond, Iron Bonehead productions. What is there not to like about that? Anyway, the track seems to be called just plain “Whirlwinds”:
Spewn forth the winds of wrath
Monument of unknown craft
Evoken a storm of a vast degree
Scenarios of horror you will see
Purification of this earth
Population has no worth
Obscure vortex to devastate
(This is) World's ghastly horrid fate
Change and answer they emphasize
This world raped before your eyes
Storms will strike so relentless
Embrace demise so helpless
Watch as this doomed world collapses
Foolishness of man it traps
Abyss on this planet brought
Within vortex of death (you're) caught.
I would concur with the apocalyptic sentiments thus expressed, and even bang my head in acknowledgement of that post-truth.
