A civilization promises peace The Foundation plots their destruction On a rainbow bridge


The Foundation marches onwards


A man who misses his father Finally meets his end Another man sheds no tear


The Foundation marches onwards


Edison went Not in a blaze of glory But in a bed, alone


The Foundation marches onwards


A photosynthetic woman Tries to help The flower dies


The Foundation marches onwards


A woman sacrifices Her only child, crying As he screams


The Foundation marches onwards


A man made of Glass Is pushed too far And breaks


The Foundation marches onwards


The King of apples Refuses the throne And is consumed by his fate


The Foundation marches onwards


A man of little talent Meets a Scream of anguish And stops functioning


The Foundation marches onwards


A man of nothing Watches the universe It was enough


The Foundation marches onwards


A woman stuck in a pit Meets an uncontainable Library Her blood cakes it’s shelves


The Foundation marches onwards


A man out of Sorts Wishes to die He makes it painless


The Foundation marches onwards


An alchemist Works to his end Explaining the universe


The Foundation marches onwards


A dimensional traveler falls His corpse traveling Forever after


The Foundation marches onwards


A bug in the system Works itself out And a forgotten man, disappears


The Foundation marches onwards


A man who keeps on going A man too useful to die Outlives his usefulness


The Foundation marches onwards


A woman clinging to power Watches her son die And ends her life


The Foundation marches onwards


A Moose with magic Runs to the Library And sees it burn, laughing to the end


The Foundation marches onwards


A dog, beyond its years Ends the Bookburners With a click and a boom, barking to the end


The Foundation marches onwards


A woman who likes butterflies watches the world burn The fluttering coming to an end


The Foundation marches onwards


A mad doctor Laughs, once, at his creation As it kills him


The Foundation marches onwards


The forever agent Fires his last bullet And smiles at the end


The Foundation marches onwards


A time traveler No longer sees the future is this the end?


The Foundation marches onwards


Jesus Christ Watches the Bloom, waiting And as nothing happens, she cries happily


The Foundation marches onwards


A Clef sounds the end As a chain breaks And then the sun went out


The Foundation marches onwards


A man made of Gears Looks at the horizon A tear leaves his eye


The Foundation marches onwards


A Bright necklace watches it all It’s friends left behind As it is finally destroyed


The Foundation marches onwards


A man who dies last Finally passes away Cursing his creator to the end


The Foundation marches onwards


The Last Author Took one last look Before ending it all


The Foundation marches onwards


Irredeemable It arrives The end


The Foundation marches onwards


A Kind Man Sheds a tear For the Foundation, on its endless journey


The Foundation marches onwards


A man, ascends To the Finale Losing himself along the way


The Foundation marches onwards

And onwards

And onwards
