The Changing Planet

The Changing Planet As hope and humility conquers all Pride goes before a fall So pick up your booth straps, tighten your belt For this world will experience something that it has never felt The Earth will rumble and shake And there will be volcanoes and many a quake Waters of the oceans, will be put on land As man shudders, he will not understand Thus the planet is in for a correction As streams, rivers and oceans, change direction He realizes that he is but an insignificant creature This is not a movie, not a made-up feature Before all this happens, there is a major disaster But this is not coming from the Master I see grown trees, upside-down in the sky Black muddy waters, dead fish , not from on high And there appear a crack, a trench in one continent About ten feet wide and endless deep without resentment As man prepare to await his final blow He wonders if he will reap, what he sew And the Earth stands still, then changes its mind Then turn in the opposite direction, one last time So gravity seems to be a thing of the past As man consider, how long this changing will last William Morrissey 2/10/07 vision
