The challenging divine call, 
Started beating...

Our sea of coexistence
both confluent and dissonant
where blind consciousness

The supernatural puppeteer behind power
The chieftain of the tycoons
The moral and immoral nous
The sheepherder of the multiverse

Thy sheep in topsided race
Like asymmetric scale

Yesterday celebrates your uniqueness
Before acculturation...

Beneath a shroud in mystery

was built a monument sublime,

where flowed a river endlessly,

     withheld the grasp of time.
