After years of Great Prosperity, the valley fell again into darkness. In the material sense the darkness was immense and sudden (and quite obese), but the spiritual fog was of a slow, malicious nature, and its coming subtle indeed.
During this time of regress, a poet likely let out his anguish through a fountain pen, bottling the fleeting Geist of his age in verse, for us forever to ponder. Scholars argue, as scholars do, but we believe it must have sounded something like this:
Evening comes upon us all
The sun sets universal
That transcendent fire-ball
In astronomikal traversal
And so fades this Day on Earth
Shadows stretch and conquer wide
Moonrise brings from Death a Birth
Is old Krim still by our side?
The River overruns its course
Summoning an Age of Fears
Behold, ahead, a pale white horse
The end of our Golden Years
We must never let truth blind us.
