Joseph Mayo Wristen - The Teacher Speaks to a Crowd in New Jersey

The man who walks beside the prophet 
visits me in my dreams.
Tells me that they will continue to 
give us everything we need

until there is nothing left 
to give. 
Then they plan on killing 
us by poisoning our water. 

In my dream the man in the 
Robe is surrounded 
by thousands. He is talking 
to them over a loud speaker.

The ashes of light being 
better 
than the fires of darkness.

Over the screams of fatalism,
you can hear his voice 
yelling 
to his followers to burn it.
"Burn it 
to the ground."
He is asking them to follow 
their hearts 
to live the life
of their Heroes.

I hear him cry out "your 
survival will depend on 
your willingness to fight."
