Water upon the sand

After Amos 1-3

The unchosen are condemned,
those who surround the chosen.
Their strength is sapped, then
destroyed, spilled upon the ground,
water upon the desert sand.

The chosen will also fail,
summoned to judgment.
The lion does not sleep,
the lion roars upon the chosen,
those set apart.
The roar rains down,
a torrent.
