This uses the Four Horsemen as a metaphor for how the world feels sometimes these days. Every time we turn on the damn news, it seems like Armageddon. And if you dig deep enough into a lunatic's prophesies, you'll find them happening everywhere.


brother have you heard the news?
the pale horse is on the loose
sister do you realise
a red horse is on the rise
and it always feels like
the calm before the storm
Mother Earth please don't you cry
a black horse darkens the sky
Father Time you know the score
the white horse rides forevermore
