Sweeping oer the land

Red lightning shot its flashes as they came 
& passing clouds seemed kindling into flame 
& strong & stronger came the sulphury smell 
With demons following in the breath of hell 
Laughing in mockery as the doomed complained 
Losing their pains in seeing others pained 
Fierce raged destruction sweeping oer the land 
& the last counted moment seemed at hand
