T'was 1 AM when I heard loud trumpets
That never to fall from the mortal mouth
Issuing,seeping,vibrating my bed;
I was out with my gun,to demand loud.
The air seemed musical, and from nowhere
Soft voices Angelic noises:OH WHAT!
Who dared disturb another's peace in here?
I was hot.blood about to clot:who's near?
Soon a dazzling light fell on me:Oh hell!
All earth was soon to dazzle in its wake.
From the dazzling patch of cloud above fell
Angels in tender wings with all the quake:
As to make the earth rise and watch afraid;
Ready to announce Judgment Day.
So I fled to my bed's warmth
And threw the blanket right over my head.
