The End of Prophecy

By | 9 February 2008

We have to understand that we are not
The chosen ones whose word
Transforms the world by magic.
Our ways are not those that can
Bring the heavens down to earth,
That resounding angelic choir.
If we have applied ourselves at all
It is enough to guess that we are no
Prophets or examples, nor should be,
And so, because of this, we have become
Outsiders, heresiarchs, enemies-
A striking repute for the after-time.
The weavers of words can only
Weave the garments of humility.
