Thou shalt not bow by Sofia Kioroglou

Thou shalt not bow

Universal Apostasy
You will know when you see
your husband in the gates,
sitting among the elders of the land

Devil and Antichrist
prowl around like a roaring lion
Ready to devour
Open your eyes

The Mystery of Iniquity
will meet you at the city gates
seeking to devour
thou shalt not bow
