The City of pity

Harlot rides the scarlet colored beast, "the rich, fat cats having a feast.” Come now ten horns of ten fables Loose the yokes of uneven gables Babylon, Babylon the great Ten nations shall furnish your plate Mystery Babylon the great Economic icon is greed’s mate Mother of all mothers the harlot Bloody wars ride beast colored scarlet Scarlet beast borne econ harlot Waste the city, the econ starlet Two pillows, of knees bowed low Beneath ashen face has lost its glow The Caterpillars’ hum has ceased The new city shall weep for peace For one day in a month in a year A sign shall appear in a sphere Those that sigh, shall understand Fled into many mountains stand False liberty is of God forsaken Prepare for this rude awakening False pie in the sky is too high Still, fat cats ask the poor to comply =================== Written 10/10/2011
