Awaken

By 2nd September 2009December 9th, 2019No Comments

Awaken him you say ?
Why ?
Is it not better to let him sleep
See, he is at rest
Peaceful.

Better that then his righteous anger
His swift and bloody vengeance on those
Who would disturb his sleep of eons
But be at peace yourself
For it will surely come to past
That when the time is right
He will awaken from his slumber.

Then we shall know the
Anger and vengeance of the
Forgotten one
And the blood shall flow like
The rivers of Babylon.

No mercy will be shown to those who
Have tainted his name with mockery
Your children’s heads shall hang
As a necklace around his bloody neck
Your women his whores for eternity,

And you
You who are not worthy of his love,
You will watch forever the eternal torment
Of your loved ones
Amen
