"he who casts the stone can't ever do so on his own
it takes a crowd to drown a witch"
so he said to us when he wriggled free
and got the gun from me
standing before us his cracking voice rising in pitch

and then the blood
that's been spilling from his eyes
soaks through the bandages that are wrapped around his face
and just before he walks backwards through the wall
he pivots 45 degrees to face us all
and he says "let him who has eyes to see
take a good look at me
i'm a mylar sheet hanging in the sun"

Claude Rains in all his glory
is not arrayed like these
who have come to walk before us
rising from their knees
fighting back against their captors
calling down the curse
like this man who's substance is malleable
screaming out chapter and verse

and then the blood
that's been spilling from his eyes
soaks through the bandages that are wrapped around his face
and just before he walks backwards through the wall
he pivots 45 degrees to face us all
and he says "let him who has eyes to see
take a good look at me
i'm a mylar sheet hanging in the sun"

    General Comment"If you are willing to accept it, he is Elijah who is to come. Let anyone with ears listen!

    But to what will I compare this generation? It is like children sitting in the market-places and calling to one another,
    “We played the flute for you, and you did not dance;
    we wailed, and you did not mourn.”
    For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, “He has a demon”; the Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, “Look, a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax-collectors and sinners!” Yet wisdom is vindicated by her deeds.’
