Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


Political Advisors Interpret Omen


Babylonian Empire
Egyptian Empire
Athenian Empire

Roman Empire
British Empire
American Empire

League of Nations
United Nations
World Governments

none endures
leadership abuses
splinter parties

when citizen rights
citizen freedoms
are political games

praises gods of gold
silver brass military iron
wood precious stone

'read the writing on the wall'
portent doom inevitable decline
political advisors interpret omen

bodiless hands
flaring brands
seize oil lands

MENE MENE TEKEL PERES
count days profits weigh abuses
divide ill gained spoils nations

arrogance blasphemy has rewards
measure accountability of names
God has numbered the very days

of all kingdoms governments
brings all things to their ends
found wanting weighed scales

divided are kingdoms empires
war conquest given to victors
Medes Persians.... power inherits
