I heard a wail so soft and low,
from the wood I caught an eerie glow.
As the night wore on 'twas louder yet,
I laid there still, did moan and fret.

To what did the lonesome cry portend?
I shivered to think 'twas near the end.
Could the reaper of darkness be nigh?
The answer soon came from up on high.

The men who dress in long white robes,
who spread their lies across this globe.
See there! Some who are dressed in red!
Their councils and decrees fill men with dread.

But the one who holds that staff so tight,
the one who's conquered in his might,
was he the one for whom she wailed,
or will they all go down unveiled?

The sound did fade as the dawn did break,
I turned on the news, now barely awake.
Lo and behold! The CITY had fallen.
The faces of many had now grown sullen.

Never again will her voice ever rise.
Never again will she give out advice.
Never again will she preach for a price.
Never again...
Never again...
Never again...
AND the warning sound; the great fall is near REVELATION CH 17 and 18
also the title of an old horror movie starring... (guess who and you win the prize!)

Wonderful stuff, I enjoyed reading it but alas am ignorant in giving an answer to your question.  Anything James Bond and I'm your man...

The Pope and his Cardinals... the corruption in the church... That was LITERALLY the first thing that came to mind and I did a little fist pump when I read some of the comments hinting at it. :w00t:
