Amidst this music for the deaf
and mime for the blind,
I made my way to that powerful but faint voice.
And I heard it say:
‘Strange things are happening
The nation is turning upside down
And madness is coming
And confusion is coming
And war is coming
And blood will grow in the eyes of men’
I stood transfixed, unsure of what I just heard. It wasn’t a trance, neither was it a vision. Maybe it was just far – fetched imaginations.
