I believe its a true historical happening, and it was close to 10.000 years
ago, at the end of the ice-time socalled. God lived on an island with Adam
and Eve and thousends of other holy beings. It was the golden time when we
all where happy. Then there came a clift between god and his people and
most of them turned against god and "his people" whent away before the
flood, to Ireland. 150 woman and 3 men. And from there they whent to Egypt
and India and futher east. The devils took over the heavenly reagions and
we are still run bye devils. And the true holy beings are hidden, hard to
find. Anyway I believe in the flood. But it happened in the north. The jews
come from there also. They came from freshly flooded nordic sea around 8000
years ago. And met Abraham coming from Ur. He brought the the religion of
power from Sumer. He said the old god of love is dead, and now its time for
the powergod. We are in a world of wars. Every bit of land and piece you
have to fight for! And there we are today. All fighting for something we do
not remember what is anymore. Just fighting for its own sake.

I like your poem.
It has to do with a great wonder of true stories that nobody take seriously
any more...
