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
