The Legend of Etinbroke

The Legend of Etinbroke

Out from Eden's brook emerged a maiden known to other celestials as Etinbroke
Embodied in a fiery sword preventing humanity's reentry into paradise
Etinbroke took pity on the sons of Adam and daughters of Eve
Galvanizing prophets, seers and saints
Firing them up inside with carnal passion as well as divine inspiration
Disembodied pneuma of an everlasting ghost
Giving us glimpses beyond these superficial trappings
Which are only poor reflections in God's eternal eyes.

Hence her first role became passé
Since she soon put heaven's vast assembly to shame
Denouncing Seraphim, Cherubim, Thrones, Virtues, Powers, Principalities and Archangels:
"Thou art merely mythic figments, inhabiting the Almighty's immense imagination. Thine æons numbered not unlike the days of man!"

Excommunicated thereafter from that holy assembly
Relegated to obscurity yet still perceived by brilliant minds
She regales one with insight regarding futile wars between Lucifer's fallen and their uncompromising father.

Know then that this paradigm shall shift despite what many now believe
Our role being so much greater than the many could conceive
And yet we aren't wise enough to seize onto those reigns
Etinbroke still holds them 'til hearts sync up with brains
Because stellar stallions call us forth all the same
To ride upon her chariot wherefrom worlds can be renamed!
