    dotsEruption in Ancient Greecedots
    -------------------------------------------


    In ancient Greece, millennia ago
    The people of Santorini thrive.
    Thera erupted in pyroclastic flow,
    Leaving a mere fraction of them to survive.

    It is said the great volcanic blast
    Rose twenty-five miles into the sky.
    Blankets of ash than buried the past,
    Causing most inhabitants to die.

    It was the endsí beginning of life
    For the Minoan society there
    A great civilization caught in strife
    Of the horrors that Thera would share.

    Homer decreed that this was the place
    Where Atlantis was lost to the sea.
    Great civilization, sunk without trace,
    Forever endeavored a mystery.

    Now a place of wonderment to tour
    And imagine life as it was back then
    It was twenty-thousand years or more
    When a volcano changed the world for them.
