Chapter Five

from the book of revelation

the boss
held his possessions closely
encrypted them within seven seals

the pain he must feel
becomes real tears streaming
live down so many faces

pelted with insults his child
refuses to die
reaches out to a world
programmed to never understand
their own ransom

new generations give forth
a sense of promise
offering peace on earth (for the)
next thousand years

newly created criminals
and their invisible entourage
emerge as expected
floating like butterflies and
stinging like bees

august two thousand fourteen

  1. the third stanza is a stunner – wonderful take on the prophecy and current events – very cool write, John – K

  2. Very apt for the time.. the stinging butterfly reminds me of “bullet with butterfly wings”

    That is a great song, but I was thinking of Ali when I read it

    Astounding series…
