The Overturning

Your friend has not gone mad
He saw him on the horizon clear
he does not hoard for himself the unseen
This is not the word of a satan
struck with stones

Where are you going?
This is a reminder to all beings
For those who wish to walk straight
Your only will is the will of God
Lord of all beings
