Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


The Reason For Speech


Homo-sapiens aspiring humans
have always sought to imbue
to worship honour appease
conceived our God conceptions
through embellished words.

Since first ritually
we group grunted
guttural forth
our first few animated
formulated syllables.


Theme forced voiced dramatically
our first vocal thematic
interchanges with God
culminating in constructing
Tower of theological Babel.


Precursor to noisy
ancients ascending to twentieth century
religious confusion
expressing volatile judicial
dominion denominational intolerance.

Precursor to noisy individualistic
twentieth century systematic
interchanges. Religious confusion reflecting
expressing volatile racist non-cleansing
judicial denominational prejudice.
