Revelation

“Then I saw in the right hand of him who sat on the throne a scroll with writing on both sides and sealed with seven seals.”
~ Revelation 5:1

Nights unfold
Like the scrolls of Revelation
Dragons and Leviathan breathing inconvenience
Gehenna burning bright
As the pale horse gallops across America
Lead me not into temptation
Bring the whore to heel
Empire to ashes
As the Barstool Prophet orders another round
Truth to Power, “he sighs…” and sips his martini
What changed from Egypt to Babylon to America?
From bathtub gin to methamphetamines 
Sing me another song Abishag
A melody for humanity
Lyrics of carnal hermeneutics
“going all the way down”
Keeping my body warm in the night
We know Goliath died long ago
Yet, his shadow looms over us all
So, bring me to Jerusalem
We will find new wine to drink
And five smooth stones in a wadi
