Paradise Lost (And Regained) - Poem by Brian Taylor

In the Beginning.
God walked with Adam in the cool of the day.
Despite hearing the Truth from God’s own mouth,
Adam did not heed Him.

Later,
God sent prophets to be his tongues.
Despite hearing the Truth from God’s own prophets,
Adam’s descendants did not heed them.
Many were imprisoned, stoned or ignored.

Now,
in this New Age,
God has chosen living men
to be His eyes and ears and not His tongue.
Their task is to perceive,
accurately and without prejudice,
all that happens
Here,

What they see is transmitted
to God’s Control Room,
which is beyond our understanding.

Reward and Punishment
is now swift and unerring.

Now,
what we see and experience
Here,
in our world,
is entirely appropriate
to what
we are doing
Here
and deserve.
