(08/31/1961) Ezekial’s Bestiary

Ezekial’s Bestiary
The Seven Headed Beast has won
The Woman Clothed With The Sun

The Beast comes from the Conscious Sea
The Beast walks in eternity

Each Sign-Change must be served its Beast
As sacrifice, and royal yeast

The Lion and the Lamb shall share
The innocence of Beastly lair

The Eagle tears the Taurian sky
Androcles leads the Lion by

A Beast is beastly without sin
In Eden Beastly men begin

The Serpent is a Beastly tree
In His Edenic purity

And forests of the Trees of Heaven
Burn with Thy Star, Unstable Seven!
