The Black horse is coming,
In darkness heíll reign.
Unrighteousness is his harness,
Apostasy his rein.

He who rides on the back,
Of this evil menacing steed;
Holds the straps of iniquity,
And the bridle of greed.

His power is so ruthless,
Ungodliness will abound.
His wickedness so dark,
No light will be found.

The blackness he's bringing,
Will cause all to go blind.
He will restrain Godís love,
So, he can control every mind.

The black horse is galloping,
Heíll be charging our way.
Bringing Godís judgments,
On scales he will weigh.

Holding out the balances,
Of every good and bad deed.
Suppressing Godís truth,
So, to him everyone will heed.

Heís going to bring about,
A real spiritual hunger.
Only those with his number,
Can buy from this monger.

Heíll take out his whip,
Lash out at Godís word.
He's driven to ride hard,
So, Salvation's not heard.

The black horse is waiting,
Waiting for the third seal;
To be opened by the angel,
So, Godís light he can steal.

I like this... such a unique take on the "black" topic. This is gripping. Nice work!

Well done! Great description of the real "black rider".
I appreciated that you used punctuation - a lot of poets don't, but it makes a poem easier to read. However, I don't think that you need the commas after the "so" at the beginning of the line. It breaks up the thought in a needless way.
Great poem!

I like how the short, choppy likes mimic a horse's galloping.
