ATMOSPHERE HEAVY WITH GLOOM

Atmosphere heavy
With the gloom of evil days,
Desperation rules
The hearts, and souls and minds of,
People living in despair.

Dark moon up above
Evil hovers overhead,
Unholy presence
Orbiting a doomed planet,
Sending down death and madness.

Dark Star in the sky
Evil deeds as yet undone,
Dark omen hovers
Many light years overhead, yet
Its menace is close at hand.

Evil ambiance
Atmosphere full of tension,
Terror slowly mounts
Your senses overwhelmed by,
Feelings of imminent doom.

The calm forest -- where
Once life had been plentiful;
There once were creatures
From insects to behemoths;
Now the forest is empty.
