    ORACLE OF DOOM

    “Prohibit the taking of Omens, and do away with superstitious doubts”-SUN TZU in his book The Art of War




    The curse of slavery is near
    Wash All the sores cause God will spare
    Five used to be a sign of God & family
    Now its upside down scales counting for nine willy-nilly

    Out of the dark dungeon caves
    A big bird shall arise with wings of names
    It carries much black water in its belly it saves
    Twin statues will be brought down by its flames

    All of the planets in space
    Frowned in much disgrace
    On the actions of this rebel bird
    But the Eagle from Samites will get the last words

    Regurgitated bubbled water turned into boiling fire
    The evil bird finally full filled its plans and desire

    The robot man sniped from his gates
    By the pilot from another state
    Some are happy the tin creature didn’t take
    The White huts from across a self-made lake
    The prize was his but the time was late
    What seemed wrong was another mans mistake

    Stevie Wonder was right also to ask us not to be superstitious. He’s blind but he can see.

    Your insight in this poem is uncanny as well as the delivery being off the chain..."Make No Mistakes About it!" sounds like a fantastic endeavor...God's blessings on this much needed project.
