Stand up Sit down
Lookup Look down
Buckle up Calm down
Roared the Oracle.

Shehala Sherin

Obey the Oracle
To be the miracle,
Obey the Oracle
Who had the taste of trust
And the smell of the Just
Obey the Oracle
Who conjured the walls
And prevented the falls.
Obey the Oracle
Who promised bliss
And warned them of the abyss.
One of the angels soared in hope
Trusting the Oracle,
Like an eye trusting on the light.
That day the venomous abyss revealed
And the angels saw the fangs of their Oracle.
