Modern Prophet

'Bringing nations to their knees'

It's not education,
It's just passing the time.
Latter-day oracle,
Sleep deprived and caffeine highs
With knowledge to bring nations to their knees
Nights spent stooped in
Barely-there lamp light
Deciphering cryptic voices and something better than what is now.
There is something more than human and less than great and
How it loves you so.

The End
