The Words of the Prophets

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made.
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming.
And the sign said,

The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls

And whispered in the sound of silence.

The Sound of Silence WotP-Blaise-Pascal-300x189
