Prophecy in Farm Yard Flesh Part 3

February 14, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 154

Prophecy fleshed enjoys the little run. Chick on back she scurries right and left- and all she hears are laughs from the little one, "Mama, will the snake go away?" "Just give him time to prey upon us for a little while honey," she says, and laughs and jumps - taking her chick to all new heights of six feet or better.

"Do serpents really chase themselves?" "Oh, son, you talk too much." "But, mommy, I did notice that the serpent comes here every day and plays with this and that, but no one knows exactly where it's at. It hides upon the thickest grass, sneaks upon the cow. But when the cow makes one small stir- The sow, he thinks, will become a better prey And when the sow plays, swishing the snake in the mud. The snake no longer likes the sow and goes to the lambs instead where some follow him until the dog's bark comes from inside the house. Then he's quiet as a little mouse."

"Oh, little one," mama chicken tenderly says, this is a game the snake now must always play. Once he was the proudest being. And over the farm he had a voice of silver thread to weave the story and creation's song. Whereupon he did exalt the mighty throne of God with genius of song and pearl strings of vocal praise, and not just loud but with his very breath he gave to God his all. But that was before his fall."

"What happened then?" The chick excited drops from mother's back, and upon the soft ground lies. Beak twitching, ears peeled back. "He gave a cry. No one knows just where he was or why though we all looked up. The cow had pissed too near him then, or so the story goes. Are you sure you want to hear this?"

"Oh yes, yes. Yes, yes." "Okay. The serpent, tired of the pissing rain of the cow over him (though the cow was just refreshing and meant no harm of course) got up dripping one fine hot day (he was steamed of course) though the cow apologized, the serpent had grown weary of wading through cow pies and stepping through the trails of mud by the water trough..." "But serpents have no feet." "Be patient now, my dear. I will finish the story if you let me. We must hurry, our time is almost near. But the snake was spiteful--"why does no one fear to tread on me?" it said.

"But ah," said the cow, "you are nothing large to dread. (The cow of course was not well versed in speech. Rhetoric detained him and grace of thought was for him a leash too tight and much hurt his neck) "Of course your body's very beautiful," cow said stumbling backward to his previous sentence but slipping "In fact if I were a meat eater I'd stomp you to death with two kicks and eat it."

Of course the serpent didn't take the compliment well. He mentioned some past winter experience where he had thrown snowballs in hell. And though the cow went on to calm him the cow didn't do too well. The snake was gone for quite a spell. Within a year, his beauty was forgotten. When he returned his legs were cleft and he had an unnatural desire for mutton which the kind dog gently shooed him away But for which was his equal prey "Now son, the snake is not a natural hunter. In fact the way the serpent's legs were built -- well he seemed more like a runner. Made to spread the news of God to others, shout greatness to the world.

But the snake (let this be a lesson, son) was never proud of its own natural act. And so with death through sin he made the first pact and told the lie to others, since then he's added to death so many brothers -- oh child, are you sure you want me to go on?" "Yes, mom."
