After Daniel 8:18-27

Asleep, then wakened,

he hears the voice explain

the dream, the vision.

The voice diagrams

the path of history, what

is to come, not in the moment

but in the decades and

centuries ahead: the rise

and fall of kings and

empires explained

without reassurance. 

The voice speaks of rams 

and goats, of horns

large and small, horns

broken, crowns and

kingdoms rising and

falling, nothing enduring

until the end.
