Paling well after sixteen days, a mammoth task was set
Close the door and bar the gate, but keep the windows clean

Bloodhounds nosed around the houses, down dark alleys sailors crept
Angels mumbled incantations, closely watched by God on high
Lightning struck out - fire and brimstone! Boiling oil and shrieking steam!
Not a man who had a finger, not a man who could be seen

Windows peeped out on their neighbors, inside fireside bedsides gleam
Those alive will meet the prophets, those at peace shall see their wake
