Revelation I

Larry D. Fort-

Man must die in order to live

It’s a hallowed truth in turn

Convulsing around the fire

As he watches his own world burn


Now I’m searching through meaning in paperbacks

Looking for God in Man

Shuffling through the mail again

For an invitation to the Promised Land


And I know that it won’t be much longer

Before the tempestuous waters roar

And claim all of my refuge and haven

Locked in the promise of 1854


Man must die in order to live

Because death is peace and salvation

From mother’s sin, to father’s gin

It leaves you with nothing but anticipation
