We Ignore the Prophet

We ignore the prophet,
close our eyes to his words
and in these latter days
the incessant beating still goes on.

Beating now our plows into swords,
and our swords into bombs.
Beating our pruning hooks into spears,
and our spears into guns.

It shall come to pass
and may it come soon
that the mountain of the LORD
shall be raised up,
sending down a shower of earth
to bury our weapons,
an avalanche to bury those who would fire them.

(Isaiah 2: 1 - 5)
