When the Prophet Goes Mad

When the prophet goes mad
her tongue goes loose
and no matter whose
ear is in the way predictions,
curses, wishes and prayers
are summoned in one breath of smoke
consuming fire ablaze.

When the prophet goes mad
he finally speaks his heart
because his mind cannot keep
closeted truths that are meant to fly.

When the prophet goes mad
the earth shakes.
For the power behind her gift
cannot be contained
will not be subdued
 has never been idled
won’t accept anything
except what is required. 

When the prophet goes mad is
when he or she is most useful to God.
