Part II--Signs

And the people of the time shall wail and moan.
They shall fear their lords; their gods have left them.
Dragons will fly again, devouring whatever they will.
Hideous peoples will run the grounds on all faces of the land.
The seas no longer run true.
This shall be a sign to you:
The sky will blacken for one month.
The Great Star will not rise.
This will be the purifying of Man, and it will bring carnage and fear.
Countries will fall easily and men will pray.
And after one month the stars will live again.
This will be the birth of a new Season.
This will be the death of Freedom.

Part I--Woe

Do you hear?
Quiet and Listen!
Do you hear?
War is coming, and with it Destruction.
Fire and Power flatten and crush the cities.
Violence and Panic finish up the annihilation.
And where is your hope?
You have killed it.
Yes, you wiped Hope out with a mighty blow,
all in your quest for Purification.
Vain and selfish people, you have destroyed yourselves!

**Translated from the 20th century prophet San-Sha ta Nek
