The Wages Of Sin

Kolmanskop – Sand

“Repent, ye Sinners, Repent! The Hour of Judgement is nigh! Henry Wadsworth Longfellow said in Retribution.

“Though the mills of God grind slowly;
Yet they grind exceedingly small;
Though with patience he stands waiting;
With exactness he grinds all.”

The Wages of Sin are Death and Destruction! This was a place of riches and excess that fed off of Desperation and Greed! See how the Mighty have Fallen! The neon signs that flashed their lures Litter the avenues! The desert has crept in and its sands cover the pavement knee-deep! Their fine buildings are empty and deserted! Lust brought them Down! Pride was their Ruin! Gluttony, Sloth, and Envy Ruled over this City oF Sin! The Wrath of God was their Just Reward! Change your Ways lest you Follow!” The fire and brimstone preacher ranted thunderingly. His eyes were flashing wildly. He was frothing at the mouth. He stood tall on his soapbox before the former City of Las Vegas.
