Two Witnesses

The Two Witnesses

Listen my children and ye shall hear
Of olden times, of yesteryear:

The Bible told a story of two witnesses.

From narrative two thousand years less old, We know two witnesses about whom our story is told.

The Revelation of St. John the Divine foretold the empowerment of these two to "prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days."

In May 2009 they emerged from an underground life To fearlessly warn the world of unthinkable strife.

This pair presaged of global colonization With singular purpose and conviction.

John pronounces them "the two olive trees and two lampstands which stand before the Lord of the earth" to fulfill their calling.

In officialdom, media nests, and public places The Two did the bidding of Fate and God's graces.

"And if anyone would harm them," fire "from their mouth" will consume their foes. They will possess "the power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophesy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with every plague, as often as they will."

The witnesses' attackers, murderous for years, For forty-two months shed their own tears

As The Two burned opposition with persuasive tongue And wielded shielding powers by Higher Beings brung.

"When they have finished their testimony" a beast from "the bottomless pit" will vanquish them "and kill them."

In November 2012, defenseless now their work was complete A colonist "beast" viciously slew The Two together at its feet.

"Their dead bodies will lie in street of the great city" and "for three days and a half they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall gaze at their dead bodies and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice...because these two prophets had been a torment to all who dwell on the earth."

Frozen with fear and misplaced rage
Over unwelcome tidings of colonization in their own age,

Humans figuratively slew the hated messengers too, By letting them rot in their own martyred blood, guts, and goo.

But then "after three and a half days the Spirit of the life from God entered them and they stood on their feet" terrifying all who saw.

We've all seen the video footage of that miraculous feat Of The Two living and breathing again, whole and replete.

A "great voice from heaven" commanded, "'Come up hither!' and in the sight of their foes they went up to heaven in a cloud."

The cameras did not record their rise into the sky. The hovering spaceship disrupted the electrical tie.

But none of us doubts The Two ascended from earth's base And probably live still, adventuring in some corner of space.

By the appearance of the Protector aliens' craft, Not only did the witnesses receive a life raft

But Earth and its billions were saved
From the black-oil aliens invasion plans so depraved.

And every school child today knows until it bores That William was the boy who psychically hailed the Protectors...

And that the witnesses were his birth parents Mulder and Scully Who selflessly sounded the alarm of impending alien colony!
