PRISONERS OF TIME

PRISONERS OF TIME
01-18.03.1990


PART ONE: CREATION

TO ANARCHY BURSTS FORHT WAVES OF LIGHT:
PHOTONS OF LOVE IN LASER FLIGHT,
KALEIDOSCOPIC COLORS BRIGHT,
CREATION'S CRYSTAL MIGHT…

UNIFORM MOTION, PARALLEL FELLOWSHIP,
ATOMIC FISSION IS BORN;
ELECTRICITY WITH SOUND THROUGH SILENCE RIP,
CHEMICAL ACTIONS ADORN
BY REMOTECONTROL AN INTERCOSMIC TRIP
AS PLANET FROM MASS IS TORN…

GENETIC COMPOSITION APPEARS.
PHANTASMAGORICAL VIEW TROUGHT TEARS:
LIFE'S EFFLUENT ESSENCE ADHEARS
TO MEASUREMENT OF YEARS.

EXTANT UBIQUITY SHARES LENGTH, HEIGHT AND BREADTH,
PROBING THE FOURTH DIMENSION,
CONDUCTING ONEWAY TRAFFIC FROM BIRTH TO DEATH
REGARDSLESS OF DECLENSION;
ALONG THE SILVERCHORD OF TIME BREATH BY BREATH
SOULS AGE IN APPREHENSION.

AFFLICTIONS EQUAL WILLPOWER
LIKE THE BLOOMING OF A FLOWER
AFTER A FRESH MIDDAY SHOWER
NIGH FATE'S PRISONTOWER.

CONSCIOUSNESS OF ALL SUBSTANCE WITH HARMONY
POOLS IN THE ETERNAL NOW;
WHILE ON JOURNEY AT CONSTANT VELOCITY
FORGING FORWARD THOUGHTS ALLOW
ENTRY FOR DOUBT VOMITING CACOPHONY
BY ASKING QUESTIONS: WHY? HOW?

NEEDS, DESIRES, FEARS AND LONELINESS
AMONG MANKIND CAUSE GREAT DISTRESS:
THOSE SEEKING LICENSE TO OPPRESS
ARE CLOTHED IN SHAMELESSNESS!

IS ERROR FREEDOM FROM SHACKELS OF SEASONS?
SOME MORTALS SEEK IT IN HERBS
CALLED GUIDES, KEYS OF HEAVEN, OR DIVINE REASONS;
EACH ESCAPE ATTEMPT DISTURBS
INNER PEACE, AFFLICTING HEARTWALLS WITH LESIONS
ENCROACHING TRUTH'S SUBURBS…

TO COURT NATURE AND FAR STARS THAT SPIN
COULD ENERGIZE BODIES WITH SIN;
CONSCIENCE'S LIGHT SPEAKS FROM DEEP WITHIN:
"DON'T LET LUST HOPE RECIND!"

ACCOUNTS OF ANCIENT DESERT-TRIBES ARE BYGONES,
TALES OF WEEPING ROCKS AND STONE;
HANDS RISE CARRESSINGLY FROM SANDS OF EONS
WHISPERING "WE'RE NOT ALONE…"
ORACLES FROM A NECROMANCER'S SÉANCE
CLAIMS DOOM MUST SIT ON GOD'S THRONE.

ROCKING RHYTHM, SWEET MUSIC OF TREES,
NOTES OF SINGING BIRDS GLIDE WITH EASE;
FAMILIAR TOUCHES APPEASE,
A CHILD TO SLEEP AGREES…

ABORTIVE DREAMS FADE OUT IN LOST ABSTACT HOPE:
CAUGHT IN BLEAK REALITY
WHERE UNWANTED POOR ARE LEFT BEHIND TO COPE
WITH CURSES OF ANCESTRY;
UNLOVED CHILDREN ABUSED BY FAMILY GROPE
THROUGH ILLUSION'S VANITY…

PART TWO: THE GREAT CONSPIRACY

WITHIN EARTH'S REALM A MEETING TOOK PLACE
OF TRAITORS TO THE HUMAN RACE;
THEIR BLASPHEMY WOULD SOON AMAZE
SUCH AS SEEK GOD'S FACE…

WITH PALE, WHITE SKINNED ARISTOCRATIC FEATURES
TALL LONGLIMBED BAL ARAM STOOD:
HIS DEEPSET BLUE EYES SLYLY SCANNED THE TEACHERS
KNEELING BY HIS OUTSTRETCHED FOOT;
DISTINCTLY SET APART FROM HIS FELLOW CREATURES
WITH STRAWBLOND HAIR HE LOOKED GOOD.

A LOGICAL FREETHINKER NO LESS,
MEGALOMANIAC TO EXCESS
WANTING WORLDPOWER TO POSSESS,
LOVE HE COULD NOT EXPRESS.

NIMROD HIS NEPHEW BY A CLOSED WINDOW POSED
APPEARING ALMOST GRACIOUS:
BLACK NEARLY BLUE, MAGNIFICENTLY CLOTHED,
HIS DEEP BROWN EYES AUDACIOUS;
RIPPLING MUSCLES FIRMLY HUNG, YET LOOSE SO 'S
TO REVEAL HE'S VIVACIOUS.

HIS OWN GENIUS DID HIM BAFFLE:
HIS ENTIRE LIFE A RAFFLE
BORN TO FEAST AT THE KING'S TAFFLE,
MANKIND WOULD HE SNAFFLE;

"LOVE? GOD? SUPERIOR BEINGS WHO DIRECT?
NONSENSE: WE BOW AND OBEY?
WE'RE OUR OWN MASTERS, ALL OTHERS I REJECT!
CROWN ME CHRIST YOU SHALL TODAY
BAL ARAM, I'M THE RULER PEOPLE EXPECT.
LET'S MAKE NO FURTHER DELAY!"

THEN STEPPED FORWARD THE STRONG PRINCE ASSHUR
KNOWN AS A MIGHTY WARRIOR;
WITH CONFIDENCE CROSSED HE THE FLOOR
FIERCELY IN HIS ARMOR:

LONG, THICK DARKRED HAIR FELL DOWN
ONTO HIS BROAD STRAIGHT SHOULDERS,
PEOPLE IN HIS WIDESET AMBER EYES COULD DROWN,
A DREAD TO MOST BEHOLDERS;
TIGHT WAVES OF CURLY BEARD DID NOT STOP THE SOUND
OF HIS VOICE, TOUGH AS BOULDERS.

"MY LORD KRISHNA FORGETS THOUGHTS OF OUR BROTHER
WHILE TRYING TO PLEASE OUR GRANDMOTHER?
SHEM'S THRONE CAN'T PASS TO ANOTHER,
WHAT'S THE USE TO BOTHER?"

"RENEWED FAITH WE NEED IN OUR HUMANITY,
NOT IN SOME FAR AWAY GOD;
MUST WE NOT EVOLVE OUR OWN DIVINITY?
NOAH? SHEM? REGARD THEM NOT!"
SAID NIMROD COVETOUSLY, "WE'RE LIFE'S BEAUTY
WORSHIP WORTHY, ARE WE NOT?"

"INDEED MY REBELLIOUS BLACK PANTHER,"
SWIFLY CAME ARAM'S SOFT ANSWER.
"TEACH THE WAY OF BOW AND LANCER,
ENSLAVE SERF WITH PRANCER.

WE AS TRUE GODS ARE ENDOWED LIKE NEPHILLIM
AND YOU, BAL KRISHNA ARE KING!
EARTH SHALL WORSHIP IMAGES OF CHERUBIM,
WE SHALL POSSESS ALL LIVING,
EVEN DEATH SHALL TO US BE BOUND: LOW OR PRIM
TO RELIGION ALL WILL CLING."

"YES, KING I AM! BAL ARAM SPEAKS TRUTH:
ETERNALLY LIVE I IN YOUTH.
NOAH'S PATRIARCHY IS UNCOUTH
AND CANNOT OUR SOULS SOOTHE.

THEREFORE MUST WE OFFER THEM AN ILLUSION:
A FALSE HOPE OF LIFE IN EASE,
LONG SLOW TWILIGHT, NO CHALLENGE, NO INTRUSION,
MELANCHOLY TO SELFPLEASE,
BATHOS, LOTOS, LETHE, AN INSTITUTION
TO HIDE THEIR SPIRITS' DESEASE…"

NIMROD PAUSED TO SENSE HIS WORDS' EFFECT,
HE NEEDED HIS UNCLES RESPECT,
SOUGHT IMPROBITY TO DETECT;
FOUND THEIR CANDOR CORRECT.

"A PERPETUAL SUSPENSION IN EXILE,
PERFUMED PENITENTIARY,
SELFIMPOSED PUNISHMENT RENDERING STERILE
HUMAN SENSIBILITY:
WITH CONSTANT SUFFEREING THE CHURCH, LOST, FUTILE,
BECOMES AN INFIRMARY."

ARAM MULLED OVER HIS NEPHEWS THOUGHTS;
A TEMPLE THEY'D BUILD FOR THE GODS:
SHIVA SHANKER SATAN ALLOTS
WORLDPOWER TO DESPOTS…

"OURSELVES MUST WE FIRST BUILD A TALL ZIGGURAT
TO ENTER HEAVENLY HALLS,
IT SHALL STAND TO SERVE US AS A JUGGERNAUT
RIGHT WHERE THE TEMPLEGROUND SPRAWLS;
LET'S NAME ITS SEVEN LEVELS THE 'GATE OF GOD':
BAB-ILU TO MANKIND CALLS!

AS PRIESTS CANAAN'S SONS SERVE, I DECIDE,
ARAM AND ASSHUR LAW PROVIDE;
MY BROTHER RAMA BY MY SIDE
WHO THEN WILL DARE TO CHIDE?"

THUS THROUGH A DISLOCATION OF AWARENESS
GAINED THE CONSPIRATORS SWAY.
SYNCRETISTIC DESTRUCTION SWEPT LIKE ILLNESS
IN MEN'S HEARTS WHO FELL AWAY
FROM FAITH IN ONE GOD; AS PROPHETS US IMPRESS:
BY REFUSAL TO OBEY.

PART THREE: THE INDICTMENT

IN GOD'S PATRIARCHAL DYNASTY
OF ADAM'S ROYAL FAMILY
WAS HEARD THE BEASTLY HERESY
FROM NIMROD'S APOSTASY…

CROWNPRINCE EBER, SMALL, WIRY AND INTENSE,
ALL IDOLATRY ABHORRED.
HIS GREEN CATLIKE EYES FLASHED IN ANGRY SUSPENSE:
"GOD'S KINGDOM WILL BE RESTORED,"
HE VOWED, "TRANSGRESSORS SHALL EARN JUST RECOMPENSE."
TRUTH IN HIS HANDS WAS SECURED.

TO NOAH THE YOUNG PRINCE RIGHTLY WENT
DEMANDING A MESSAGE BE SENT
CALLING FOR NIMROD TO REPENT
OR FACE DEATH CONSEQUENT!

PAUPER THIN, A WELL TANNED FACE WORN AND WRINKLED
AS AN ANCIENT WATERBAG,
OLD NOAH, HIS SNOW-WHITE HAIR WITH BEARD MINGLED,
KNEW HEM'S GRANDSON LOVED TO BRAG;
AS HE SPOKE HAZEL EYES WITH WISDOM TWINKLED.
"NIMROD TO JUSTICE WE'LL DRAG.

GREAT THOUGH THE DAMAGE HE'S DONE MAY SEEM,
REMEMBER: NONE CAN GOD BLASPHEME
WITHOUT HIS KNOWING WHAT THEY DEEM:
THEY SWIM AGAINST THE STREAM.

EXPANSIVE DESTRUCTION DECREES: BAD GETS WORSE
IF SOURCE STAYS UNCORRECTED,
ITS WIDENING OPERATIVE SPHERES DISBURSE
EVIL TILL ALL'RE AFFECTED;
BY NIMROD'S DEATH LITTLE IS GAINED UNLESS FIRST
HEARTS CHANGE: GOD BE RESPECTED."

"BUT ALL THOSE WORDS THEY USE," SAID EBER,
"CREATE OF THE SOUL A SLEEPER:
THE USELESSNESS OF A WEEPER
AS HIS BROTHER'S KEEPER!"

WITH A SIGH NOAH SMILED WHILE NODDING HIS HEAD.
'THE LAD IS RESOURCEFUL AND KIND,'
HE THOUGHT, 'ZEALOUS FOR GOOD WORKS OF FAITH INSTEAD
OF POWER HUNGRY, NOT BLIND;
AN ICONOCLAST, ENOCH'S SCRIPTURES HE'S READ,
SALVATION HE SOON WILL FIND.'

"THOUGH WHAT YOU SEE," NOAH SAID, "IS TRUE,
YOUR FAITH AND THOUGHTS ARE SHARED BY FEW:
IT'S A WORLD OF LIES, CRY AND HUE,
DOING WHAT OTHERS DO.

BILLIONS OF WORDS THOUGHT IMPORTANT WHEN SPOKEN
ROB THE POOR LISTENERS OF SIGHT:
FRAMED INCESSANTLY AS CASTLES OF TOKEN,
COLLAPSIBLE STRUCTURES BRIGHT
FOREVER REPLACING PROMISES BROKEN,
THEY TURN NOONDAY INTO NIGHT;

ONLY AT LAST CLOSE BY DEATH'S DARK VEILS
WORDPOWER US NO LONGER JAILS,
ITS DIN FADES, NO LONGER ASSAILS:
FINAL SILENCE PREVAILS…

IT IS BUT IN SILENCE WE HEAR MAJESTY
TRUTH SPEAK WITHOUT WORDS OR SOUND:
WHOEVER IS HONEST WILL CONFESS THEY SEE
HOW TO SIN OUR SOULS ARE BOUND;
GOD'S LAW OF LOVE MAKES ALL HUMANS GUILTY
WHEN WE THROW DIRT: WE LOOSE GROUND!

NO MORE THAN ONE WAY LEADS OUT OF HERE:
FAITH AND RIGHTEOUSNESS CONQUER FEAR,
WICKED SOULS AS IT WOULD APPEAR
RULE IN THIS WORLDLY SPHERE…

OUR EARTH IS A GLASSHOUSE: DEMONS ARE WARDERS,
SATAN IS PROSECUTOR.
THROUGH ADAM AND EVE'S SIN THEIR SONS AND DAUGHTERS
BRIG BORN LIFE'S RESTRAINTS EXPLORE,
AS UNWILLING BOARDERS IN CONFINED QUARTERS
THEY MORTALITY DEPLORE.

REJECTING TRUTH OF FALLEN NATURE
LOST SOULS WILL ATTEMPT TO PROCURE
SOME FORM OF REASON TO ASSURE
THEY'LL REACH DIVINE STATURE.

SUCH SEEKERS, SLOWLY SIFTING THROUOGH GRAINS OF TIME
SEARCHING FOR AMNESTY'S DOOR,
MUST SUFFER GROANINGLY FOR AGES AND MIME
VENTRILOQUIST PREACHERS WHO'RE
TEACHING, THAT WHICH THEY KNOW NOT IS THEIR OWN GRIME;
LED ASTRAY BY FLIM-FLAM LORE…

PART FOUR: THE CONCLUSION

RIGHT NOAH WAS THAT NIMROD'S ABUSE
IN SPITE OF HIS DEATH COULD INDUCE
TO HERESY AMONG HEBREWS:
EVIDENCED BY THE JEWS!

SELF-RIGHTEOUS PIETY STERILE MUTANTS SPAWN
WASTING SEEDS OF FULFILLMENT:
TOXIC IMPOSTORS WITH SYCOPHANTS THAT FAWN
AT TYRANTS' FEET AND RESENT
HONEST SINNERS, WHO TO REPENTANCE ARE DRAWN,
TOGETHER DARK LIES INVENT…

SINCERE PITY IS SINCERELY WRONG!
PITY WITH MERCY CAN'T BELONG:
COVERS GUILT WHOEVER IT'S AMONG
KEEPING THE SINNER STRONG.

LUCIFER BY ENVY CLAIMS HE'S DAVID'S CLONE,
RABBIS PIUS LIES INVENT:
BABYLON FAILS; ZIONIST ELDERS CONDONE
MEN'S REFUSAL TO REPENT,
ANTICHRIST AND BEAST FALSELY ERRECT CHRIST'S THRONE
WITH BLASPHEMIC INTENT…

SHROUDED IN TEMPLECULT IMAGERY
CAIAPHAS SNEERED HATE SCORNFULLY
IN PROPHETIC CONSPIRACY:
ENVIED CHRIST'S MAJESTY…

LIVING REPRESENTATIONS OF A GONE PAST
SIMULTANEOUSLY NOW
IS THE ACTUAL BEING OF THINGS THAT LAST
THE SPACE START AND END AVOW:
EXPERIENCE IS PRESENT EVENTS FLOWN-FAST
PROBABILITIES ENDOW…

BOTH PRETERIT AND FUTURITY
EXIST HERE AND NOW CONSCIOUSLY
IN PASSAGE THROUGH ETERNITY:
LAW UNIVERSALLY;

MATTERPARTICLES THEIR PAST TO SPACE EXTRUDE,
IN CLONED CYCLES REPRODUCE
AS VIBRATIONS: FILAMENTS STREAM TO ELUDE
DETECTION AND TOUCH ABSTRUSE
PRESERVING THOUGHT, SOUND, AND ACTION TO INCLUDE
PERFECT RECORDS, LESS EXCUSE.

FROM THESE ANNALS OF TRUE HISTORY
SHALL GOD JUDGE MANKIND RIGHTEOUSLY,
HE HAS SAINTS GRANTED AMNESTY:
FROM KARMA ARE THEY FREE.

IONIZED GENETIC CODES OF LIFE DISPLAY
NOT ALL IS EVOLUTION;
DEFECTIVE MEASUREMENTS OF CREATION'S DAY
ADD TO WORLDLY CONFUSION;
MUCH TRUTH THOUGH THERE IS IN WHAT SCIENTISTS SAY,
THEY COME TO WRONG CONCLUSION!

THE UNIVERSE SPACETIME SHARES WITH ALL
CELESTIAL OBJECTS BIG OR SMALL;
GRAVITY SPREADS ITS TIMEWARP SHAWL:
GOD'S PERFECT CLOCKWORK MALL.

UNBELIEVERS THINK IN THEIR MIND THERE'S NO SIN,
HENCE NO REASON TO ENLIST
FORGIVENESS FROM GOD RECEIVING CHRIST WITHIN;
REPENTANCE DOES NOT EXIST:
IN LUST THEIR VALUES STAND, STILLBORN, THEY AND THEIR KIN
TO CONTRADICT PERSIST.

LIKE ZENO'S PARADOX SUCH FOOLS CLIMB
NEVER TO REACH: THAT'S THEIR CRIME!
THOSE WHO CHOOSE VILE IGNORE THE PRIME:
ARE PRISONERS OF TIME…
