It's dark prose that feels like poetry. That's the nature of a good prophecy.

A Prophecy in Progress

Perfection imparts imperfect creation

Perfection imparts imperfect creation The spider mother gives of herself

Perfection imparts imperfect creation The spider mother gives of herself First is a world of mud and stone

Perfection imparts imperfect creation The spider mother gives of herself First is a world of mud and stone Doomed and gone in a blink

From the ashes the second rose

From the ashes the second rose People in place of lesser things

From the ashes the second rose People in place of lesser things Inward they thought and sought

From the ashes the second rose People in place of lesser things Inward they thought and sought Fire they bought and birthed anew

Into the third where all was fresh

Into the third where all was fresh The Mother was sent to find the few

Into the third where all was fresh The Mother was sent to find the few Chosen to inhabit perfection

Into the third where all was fresh The Mother was sent to find the few Chosen to inhabit perfection Right and good and reverent and wise

But the fourth would not sustain them

But the fourth would not sustain them Gods be damned and man as well

But the fourth would not sustain them Gods be damned and man as well A hell of selfish passion and desire

But the fourth would not sustain them Gods be damned and man as well A hell of selfish passion and desire He and She will return to their web
