THE WAR IN HEAVEN

The angels fight in heaven
As their swords slash at each other
They light the sky silver
Like a camera flash

Then there is a huge crack
Like a mahogany tree 
Breaking at its stem
I think they have broken
A wooden door in heaven
The sky becomes a sad grey
And the ground wet
As God’s tears fall

God cries…

Or maybe not.

There is another huge crack
As if the mahogany fell
On the roof of my house!
My heart is shaken

I think God
Has hit his mighty fist
On the judges’ bench
And the swords clang no more.

The Master has spoken

And what remains of the fight
Is the soft hiss
Of tears from heaven

I sigh now 
As the rain falls softly
Against the grass outside.
