Apocalypse

Orwell saw it coming The giant apparatus of the state Taking control of the people Surveying the lives Of a fearful and compliant multitude. In the Apocalypse it is written That a beast shall rise up Out of the sea And be given power Over all kindreds and tongues and nations, That another beast shall come up Out of the earth And do great wonders Making fire come down from heaven On the earth in the sight of men To deceive them that dwell on the earth, All except those who keep The commandments of God And the faith of Jesus, He who has an eye to see Let him see He who has an ear to hear Let him hear For the time is drawing near. 19/1/22 George Orwell 1984. Revelation chapters 12,13,14,15,16,17,18, all the way up to chapter 22 kjv. Best wishes for 2022.

We have been warned of what could be awaiting the world and its inhabitants. It is up to us to make sure we're prepared for when the time is ripe. Your poem is quite striking, W.A. ~ Regards // paul
