Chastisement of the Angels for their Hubris

meteor storm 1993
Listen to me and see what I have learned—
We must suffer fools
because
we were once such as they are,
no matter how we may deny that we were—
We, too, once had
the blindness of the stars,
as innocence,
bleeding out words of wonder,
senseless to our own foolishness.
We stretched out our arms for understanding,
to those who were
as we are now,
wise and mocking,
turning away
with
blindness of another kind.
