Wheels on fire

After Daniel 7:9-14

After the four beasts,

I looked to see,

and what I saw was

no game of thrones, 

but thrones being placed

in deadly earnest,

arranged to allow him

to take his seat, him

with his electric-white hair,

the ancient one, of days,

the wheels of his throne

on fire, fire streaming

before him, him served

by millions, him now

facing billions standing

before him, awaiting



Court is now in session,

the Ancient of Days presiding,

The books are opened;

judgment is on the menu.

First to fall is the beast,

killed, destroyed, consumed

by fire. The other beasts are

stripped of authority, of power,

to await the judgment to come.
