Advent Storm

Upon yonder horizon there comes a timely tempest,
Descending fast upon the people with great earnest,
A jaunty storm of strength fitted with two dozen ears,
One for each of the hours to listen to mankind’s fears,
And to those ears the people speak of what ails them
as they stand before a storm that glistens like a gem,
They are all gazed upon by one hundred azure eyes,
Never blinking, never taking themselves off the prize,

A storm carried aloft by a thousand gossamer wings,
Radiating glorious light and the serenity that it brings,
And from the storm comes forty-two trumpets to call,
Beckoning to the people with its great answers to all,
And the people rejoice at the misty feet of their savior,
Thinking that they shall receive from the cup of valor,
As they shout and cheer, a hundred azure eyes sneer,
Never blinking, darting back and forth to look and leer,

And from the storm comes seven tantalizing tongues,
Into the minds of men, they whisper from their lungs,
Stuttering out suggestions and hissing haunting advice,
Motivating people to yield their morality to sin and vice,
Imploring people to do what they think is just and right,
Encouraging people to indulge their senses and sight,
And the people rejoice beneath a hundred azure eyes,
Never blinking, never taking themselves off the prize,

It starts as a whisper but gathers into a fierce roaring,
As the storm puffs itself up, its true intentions pouring,
Its crown revealed as it goes forth ready to conquer,
Shattering willpower and mutilating morality in a blur,
Beneath the crushing maw of this wrought-iron storm,
Needled points of pain persist as validity takes form,
A nation scattered upon four winds that shall impart
searing stabs of fell fear to rip and rent them apart,

A bleak storm of strength fitted with two dozen ears,
One for each hour to take delight in mankind’s fears,
A nation fragmented before a hundred azure eyes,
Never blinking, never taking themselves off the prize.
