When the snake's head tells its tail
to shake when it should remain still,
When the tail shakes without word
From the tongue of the talking head,
When the head lies to its loyal tail, or
When the tail denies the head even
     has a say,
The Lord will cut off both
     head and tail,
          and the snake
               will slither
                    no more,
And yet the Lord's hand
     remains stretched out,
As His anger waits, perchance
     for an encore.

Isaiah 9
