Where was I?
A Poem by Bannor
Copyright: I don't own NGE.
Authors Note: I don't consider myself to be a very good poet. But I was under the influence of some good independent Black Metal, so here we go.
"Satan he comes trippin round midnight"
Where was I?
Where was I, you ask
Well, I was right there, watching it all.
I was there when man flew to close to the sun
I laughed as the ice melted
And a million hungry voices screamed
Too a silent god
I watched, as man became god
And made an image out of his likeness
I flashed a friendly smile
And told him I was proud
When father did forsake son
And son did forsake father in return
When the bonds of love broke away to sin
I was there
I watched as hope faded away
As Angels fought a war of ignorance
The lost children, I took special interest in them.
I held the first child on a lonely night
And whispered in her ear
“You will not be strong enough”
I bent the second child
To calculate when she would break
I mocked the third child
For he embodied all that was man
Weak, cowardly and hopeless
I spoke with Tabis at his last moment
I told him the truth
And watched as he cried
When the day came
That man dared make Heaven his
When death came for every man, woman and child
I did rejoice
I took the hand of the last innocent
I showed myself to her
And smiled as she went mad.
I watched as the first woman
Sacrificed herself for her son and lover
As her carcass fell to earth
I followed her
To make damn sure her last moment was with me
I looked into her remaining eye
And told her the truth
I told her exactly what I told Tabis
I said, “With you gone, I will guide them”
And she too wept.
