You know Macbeth? He came a pretty pass
By trusting those weird sisters’ double talk…
The level-headed Scott thought woods won’t walk,
Men other than of woman born are gas…
It was foretold the Halys he should cross
If Croesus wished a mighty realm to fall
And so it did – but fate would not play ball
And falsely let him suffer shame and loss.
There is a snag in oracles. They tell
The truth in such a way that none may see
Their true intentions or their destiny,
But as the truth may hurt, that’s just as well…
And still we ask those weird old sisters three,
The state, the church and commerce, what will be?
