The Consequences of Babylon

He gave self righteous testimony    
His fervered rise, climbed high above the consequences of Babylon    
     
"I command ye, to gaze apon the desolation of Set!"    
     
The shiny dimes of his eyes gleaned prophecy      
The good people had groped blasphemy like midnight lovers    
A metabolic tremble played a percussion of gnashing teeth    
   
Those who had kept hearts like lions    
Now sacrificed like lambs  
     
"Find us Lord! We are lost!"    
Came the desperate cries of grown men like children....    
"Take my baby! He is innocent!"    
Shouted frantic Mothers considering original sin    
     
His far gone look turned to a mountain    
The people saw their reflection in his crazed steely focus of iris    
     
Was this the perception of God?      
And what would become of them if they chose not to believe?      
They shuddered the repercussions     
And bowed down to serve
