No Longer

Where does the eagle
     now perch?
Why do they no longer
     feed their nestlings?
What has become of the tree tops
     where no one
          made them afraid?

The nest emptiers
     have been emptied out.
Some flew away
     in the greatest of haste.
But most were taken
     by those who handle birds best.

I AM against you.
Your sins are great.
Your scream will no longer
     be heard in the skies overhead.

You have not loved Me.
You have not obeyed.
You have not LIVED.

And so you shall
     no longer.

Nahum 2
