God's time*

One was taught to expect as I –

With Alienation firmly grasped
in God’s time the people will meld
their political will into a tight fist.

"Led by their advanced ranks
the people will crush the albatross
on their necks."

A cleansing wildfire will rage
and across plantations and factories
and inner cities
will blaze a new world unbridled.

The people’s hearts will burn like the sun
purging historical memories, long glutted
with measured lies and co-opted glories.

In God’s time nothing more will there be
to justify weapons and war
and weeping widows.

As above, so below.

*Chapter 7, Fractured Memories
