in terror I fell on my knee
screaming and pointing to where the stars should be
i watched him gallop his white horse across the skies
wearing his proclamation on his thighs
like glistening hot candle wax at night
his robe was flowing thick and white
then I saw his bottom lip stretched and thin
deformed and pushed out over his chin
a huge chunky wrought iron sword
protruded from his mouth
burnt in it the words truth and mercy   revealed himself
his eyes simply radiated light
as a torch in the dead of night
terror screamed through my veins with a start
like an arrow piercing my heart
