Never a Megiddo [*POEM*]

By ‘PAT’

Introduction by Lasha Darkmoon

A brief note on punctuation and the meaning of ‘Megiddo’

We publish here a thought-provoking poem by a poet-philosopher and political dissident known to us only as “Pat”. Who exactly this mysterious individual is has exercised the minds of many people over the years—so far to no avail! We are all still left guessing as to this person’s true identity! 🙂

Is  Armageddon  approaching  —  Yes  or  No?


LD:  I have decided to let the poem speak for itself, making no editorial embellishments worth mentioning. The poem was submitted without punctuation, with the editor being invited, if so minded, to put in the punctuation. So this is what I have done.

I have slotted in the commas and full stops with some trepidation, fully conscious that I am “guessing”  and that I may have inserted an unnecessary comma in the wrong place. Punctuation is not an exact science, and an identical text may be punctuated in a variety of different ways. Generally speaking, there are three schools of punctuators: the fussy over-punctuators (too many commas and semi-colons), the under-punctuators (too few commas and no semi-colons, which are considered out-of date and pretentiously “academic” nowadays), and the middle school of punctuators (trying for the golden mean).

Punctuation can be an agonizing business. Jane Austen was a notoriously bad punctuator and her editors had to do the job for her. Entirely. In contrast, Marcel Proust, Henry James, and Oscar Wilde were fanatical about punctuation — with Wilde once wittily bewailing the fact that he had spent a whole morning putting in a comma and a whole afternoon taking it out.

What is this poem all about?

The poet knows best. Obviously. The rest of us are largely guessing, depending on how we interpret the word “Megiddo”.  The reader who has never heard of Megiddo and dares to ask, “What is Megiddo?”,  is likely to be extremely baffled. However, if given the clue that the place name “Megiddo” is loosely connected with the place name “Armageddon” — and that “Megiddo” is here being used as a loose synonym for “Armageddon” — will understand at once what the poet is probably getting at.

“Megiddo”, my dictionary tells me, is “an ancient town in N. Palestine [see map] site of many battles, including an important Egyptian victory over rebel chieftians in 1469 B.C. See also Armageddon.”  On the map, you will see in red letters MEGIDDO (Armageddon). So “Megiddo” is simply the older and alternative name  for “Armageddon”.

As for “Armageddon”, my dictionary tells me this:

New Testament. The final battle at the end of the world between the forces of good and evil, God and the kings of the earth (Revelation 16:16). “Armageddon” is late Latin, from Ancient Greek, from the Hebrew har meggidon, mountain district of Megiddo in N. Palestine, site of various battles in the Old Testament.

Meaning now begins to take shape in the mind as to what the poet is trying to say in his otherwise baffling poem — baffling, it must be said, only to those who don’t understand the historical context of the poem and who (heaven forbid!) have never even heard of “Armageddon”,  let alone “Megiddo”. 🙂

To my mind — I could be wrong — the poet is warning us here against “doom porn”.

There will be no Armageddon, he tells us.

The New Testament prophets, he implies, got it wrong. The “end days”, as prophesied in the New Testament as being imminent, have not occurred. The “end days”, in short, have been a false alarm.

A species of doom porn.

How many prophecies have there been about the end of the world and the coming Messiah?

We have lost count. There have been innumerable false prophets. Fake prophecy is big business — and it’s a way of life, almost innate to the human mind.

This is one way of looking at the eschatological problem — dismissing all such pessimistic predictions as sensationalist rubbish.

However, there are others who argue that “a thousand years in the sight of God are as one day”, and that it is just a matter of time before the world ends in a nuclear conflagration.

After all, we now have the ability to wipe ourselves out in the blink of an eyelash. Which we never had before. The world is full of potential Dr Strangeloves, with some even believing that Donald Trump is one of them — a narcissistic madman with his finger on the nuclear button. Others, who view this Zionist stooge and serial groper with unseemly adoration, are nevertheless prepared to admit that Israel has more than enough nukes to end life on earth and has even threatened to do so if pushed to the brink — in other words, to use its Sampson Option.

Jews have resorted to mass suicide before. They will have every reason to do so again if things get too hot for them in the future. “We’ll take you all with us!” they warn. “So watch it!”

Our particular poet-philosoper Pat neatly sidesteps the possibility of  a nuclear war resulting in total annihilation by conveniently belonging to the “No Nukes” school of thought.  He is one of those highly vocal proponents of the idea that nuclear weapons have never been used before, including at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and that the whole nuclear bomb scenario is a carefully orchestrated hoax. The nations claiming possession of nuclear weapon — the US, Russia, Britain, France, China, India, Pakistan, Israel, and North Korea — are all, according to the “No Nukes” conspiracy theorists, bluffing. Or lying through their back teeth. Why are they engaged in this massive deception? I will leave that to Pat and his confreres to explain.

It has something to with money, and with the need to generate new and profitable wars, and to trike terror into the minds of millions in order keep everyone guessing.

I cannot say with 100 per cent certainty that Pat is wrong, any more than I can say with 100 per cent certainty that no white crows exist. Or that no fairies exists. Maybe they do. We just haven’t looked hard enough.

It would be hugely amusing to find out one day that no nukes exist, and never did exist, and that we’ve all been taken in.

Never A Megiddo

The troops were forced to never tell
For reasons no one could show.
The battle was fierce, and many fell.
Most knew they had faced Megiddo.

Families knew their fate and would die,
Believing the prophets did know—
All trusted the sages would never lie.
The fallen had just seen Meggido.

With burning flesh and gnashing teeth
Thousands went fast, thousands slow.
No mercy was given, and no relief.
But this was still not Megiddo.

Being misled in death’s last breath,
The truth was not theirs to know
As they were taken in violent death.
It was still not known as Megiddo.

A lie was planted in a fearful quatrain.
Out of control it began to grow.
That fear in the mind must now remain
For the powerful to push those below.

The lie was invented for total control
And if ever completed, it will go—
The people would sound their victory toll.
There can never, never be a Megiddo.

  1. I hope Pat is happy with the punctuation of the poem, also with LD’s critique of it.

    Thank you, Pat. We had no idea you had hidden poetic talents. You have hidden your light under a bushel all these years! 🙂

    This is obviously an opportunity to reconsider the “No Nukes” conspiracy theory and to explain what exactly happened at Hiroshima and Nagasaki if no atom bombs were used. How explain the radiation?

    1. ADMIN: This is a comment sent in by TROJ to the previous thread:

      It’s an okay poem, I guess, BUT it’s NOT a real poem until it gets translated into Italian [and after Lasha of course does a hatchet job on it which We call “editing/abridging”].

      Don’t worry, Gilbert, Lasha will definitely edit-abridge it as she’s translating it into Italian. That is, if it’s worthy of being translated into Italian.

      If Lasha doesn’t translate it into Italian while she’s doing a hatchet job on it, that means your poem sucks, Pat, *grin*. 🙂

    2. Admin –

      I am very pleased!! And I thank Lasha for taking the time to publish my attempt at a poem to broach my opinion of one element invented to PROMOTE global FEAR.

      You are 100% correct! 🙂

      Thanks, much!

      1. Marc –

        Thanks for the request. I take it as a compliment. I might make another poem, but the correct message might be lost by this novice. 🙂

        Until then you can see what happened in the two cities in this report from Sweden by Anders Björkman….
        ( http://heiwaco.tripod.com/cv.htm — M.Sc. Naval Architect and Marine Engineer, runs the Heiwa Co European agency for Safety at Sea since 2000;
        has more than 47 years experience of oil tanker, passenger ship and ferry design, construction, repairs and operations worldwide;
        has been a delegate to the IMO for two national administrations and one NGO;
        has been a speaker at various Safety at Sea and 911 Truth conferences – and much more…):

        “One serious mistake 1945 was that ordinary Japan citizens including children – I know two – could immediately return to Hiroshima and the damaged suburb of Nagasaki and rebuild the towns and go to school there in spite of the alleged deadly radiation, etc. There was no danger of course but to make the nuclear hoax more realistic, (**)the towns should have been sealed off and abandoned at least 10 years! Like Fukushima!

        “A US Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission to review the alleged a-bombings was not formed until October 1946. It visited Hiroshima and Nagasaki then and issued a General Report January 1947.”
        http://heiwaco.tripod.com/bomb.htm

        Belief in the atomic bombs is to believe the Main Stream Media – which…. ALL commenters here have written that THEY LIE – “BIGGLY”!!

  2. Pat, you’ve made it to the Big Time!
    And you made it look easy! Did you even work up a sweat?
    Tip of the hat to ya..

    1. @ Pat

      I’ve already expressed my admiration for your poem on the previous thread. So has Madame Butterfly. But I’d like to say it again — brilliant!. My astonishment is profound because I had no idea that you had this hidden poetic talent! Nor did anyone else. We just thought you were a kooky conspiracy theorist who didn’t believe in the moon landings or the existence of nukes. Turns out there was more to your bow than a mere fiddle! Not sure that metaphor makes any sense, but I guess you know what I mean.

      So what’s your secret, Pat? Green tea? 🙂

      Anyway, good luck!

      Pity Gilbert’s gone off in a huff and puff. If he’d watched his tongue and refrained from throwing one tantrum after another, this would have been an ideal opportunity for him to comment on your poem. After all, he was not only a talented poet himself, he also agreed with you that there were no nukes. So he would have had much to say about the “No Nukes” theory.

      BTW, I think LD’s critique of your poem is exceptionally astute and well-balanced. Though it’s clear she believes in nukes herself, as most of us here do — and although she has nothing in principle against a bit of “doom porn” herself! — a bit like Paul Craig Roberts in this respect — she has been able to explain your viewpoint fairly and impartially and indeed respectfully. Which is some achievement… this almost Olympian detachment and objectivity… never geeing ruffled by the clash of ideas and cognitive dissonance.

      1. “…a kooky conspiracy theorist who didn’t believe in the moon landings…”
        Does one have to be a kook to disbelieve in the moon landings? Just watch a video or 2 on youtube on “fake moon landing.” Does one have to be a kook as well for believing in other “conspiracy theories,” like Oswald didn’t shoot JFK, 911 Truth, Osama bin Laden dying several months after 911, No one died at Sandy Hook? Remember that the term “conspiracy theory” was coined by the CIA after JFK was killed.

      2. Darrell –

        Thanks for the support. I have been putting up with scoffers since the 1950s. My skin is to tough now to feel any pain! 🙂

        I believe as you do on those subjects… and SO DOES high successful Anders Björkman!!

        Anders Björkman
        http://heiwaco.tripod.com/cv.htm

        M.Sc. Naval Architect and Marine Engineer, runs the Heiwa Co European agency for Safety at Sea since 2000,

        has more than 47 years experience of oil tanker, passenger ship and ferry design, construction, repairs and operations worldwide,

        has been a delegate to the IMO for two national administrations and one NGO,

        has been a speaker at various Safety at Sea and 911 Truth conferences,

        holds several patents of ship safety,

        is one of the most outspoken critics of the Estonia accident investigation 1994-1997, which is still discussed 2018 as there are many reasons for it,

        thinks you shall never accuse a ship master before the incident investigation is finished, e.g. Costa Concordia; it is much better first to investigate what happened, try to re-float the wreck and inspect it (and not just remove it full of water) before accusing innocent people for anything,

        has also criticized the official US 9-11 investigations so that the FBI isn’t finally investigating it, as FBI is sleeping,

        is a recognized expert of steel structural damage analysis and knows that evidently NY skyscrapers cannot destroy themself by gravity, i.e. the weak tops cannot fall down into a black ground zero hole in the basement crushing the strong, intact parts in between, and

        offers € 1 000 000:- to anybody proving him wrong, (scoffers should)Try to win it! 🙂

        Weak, top C crushing strong,bottom A = ridiculous! Prove me wrong and win €1.000.000:- (Note – photo is a fake!)

        Furthermore, Björkman

        has revealed scientific fraud at Strathclyde University and Chalmers University of Technology,

        has written and got published a scientific discussion paper that a top down progressive global collapse (sic) that occurred twice on 911 is not possible, the opposite of which is suggested by some clowns supporting terrorism,

        was invited to the Engineering Mechanics Institute, EMI, 2013 conference in United Stasi of America to speak about it but EMI chickened out, so it seem Stasi is winning NASA style, as Björkman

        (**)does not believe in US/NASA human space travel to the Moon information because you need to eject plenty mass to decelerate/reduce speed/stop and accelerate again in space, and because navigation between moving heavenly bodies and the re-entry to land safely on Earth are impossible (NASA does not like it, as NASA cannot prove Björkman wrong),

        (**)does not believe in any atomic bomb information, because he lived and worked in Japan almost five years and found little evidence of atomic bombs, except propaganda (US Department of War against Terrorism doesn’t like it because DoWaT loves terror and atomic bombs).

        Björkman is a nice, friendly guy with good humour. Very brave! Very clever! And good looking.

        Swedish media and authorities on the other hand suggest that Björkman is “an unscientific, unintelligent and unreasonable querulant that spreads rumours and untruths (lies) as the worst creator of conspiracy theories”, or an asocial, anti-American, a-bomb denying, Arab loving alien, an aaAaAa, but have not been able to prove their obnoxiousnesses.

        Of course he wrote all above himself. Also about Världshistoria – summary of the wars 1914-2018 and how to promote peace (heiwa) and Sweden/Eastgermany (in Swedish).

    1. HS –

      No offense taken. Glad ya noticed it!

      I wish I had copied it. That would mean at least one other person believes as I do!! 🙂

      Here is the original I wrote yesterday in about 45 minutes, with only one comma for punctuation:

      Never A Megiddo
      The troops were forced to never tell
      For reasons no one could show
      The battle was fierce and many fell
      Most knew they had faced Megiddo

      Families knew their fate and would die
      Believing the prophets did know
      All trusted the sages would never lie
      The fallen had just seen Meggido

      With burning flesh and gnashing teeth
      Thousands went fast, thousands slow
      No mercy was given and without relief
      But this was still not Megiddo

      Being misled in a last breath
      The truth was not theirs to know
      As they were taken in violent death
      It was still not known as Megiddo

      A lie was planted in a fearful quatrain
      Out of control it proceeded to grow
      In the mind that fear must now remain
      For the powerful to push those below

      The lie was invented for total control
      And if ever completed it will go
      The people would sound their victory toll
      There can never be a Megiddo

      The jig would be up!! 🙂

      (An astute editor could punctuate it for me.)

      ………..

      I left “the troops” in the first line generic, using any major ‘secret’ assault, such as the Normandy invasion, as an example of a soldier thinking as he died, “This must be Armageddon as foretold by the prophets.”

      I should probably have written: “Most (falsely thought) they had faced Megiddo!”

      “The families knew their fate” referenced those in places like Atlanta in the US Civil war who died thinking Armageddon was upon them.

      Kipling woulda dun much mo betta!! 🙂

      1. Nice work Pat!
        Doom porn in a world of lies or eternal happiness and bliss could never coexist.
        Armageddon and “god fearing” on the other hand go hand in hand.
        Who needs a revengeful God apart from them that created him in their image.

  3. Pat,

    as Admin said ” This is obviously an opportunity to reconsider the “No Nukes” conspiracy theory and to explain what exactly happened at Hiroshima and Nagasaki if no atom bombs were used. How explain the radiation?”,

    I am curious about it?
    ——
    Nice poem and thanks again.

    1. Dmitry –

      Glad you asked.

      There was no radiation in those cities!

      Anders Björkman, M.Sc. wrote, “No atomic bombs have ever exploded anywhere, and nobody has died from atomic bomb nuclear radiation ever! Earn Euro 1M, if you can prove me wrong!”

      See detailed explanations here:

      http://heiwaco.tripod.com/bomb.htm

      From the report:
      After defeating Nazi Germany April 1945 USA dropped two atomic bombs on Japan August 1945 killing >200.000’s mostly civilians to install peace, we were told. Of course it never happened. Hiroshima and Nagasaki were napalm, carpet fire bombed like 60+ other Japanese towns summer 1945. It was just false propaganda of atomic destruction and nuclear radiation.

      The two atomic explosions in Japan August 1945 were Fake News based on bad science! No atomic bombs exploded over Japan! But the criminals in charge of Japan at the time immediately agreed with USA/USSR that it happened … because it suited them … so Japan could surrender … and there we are today 74 years later.

      A few hundreds well paid American, Soviet/Russian and Japanese propagandists falsified history and science and created the hoax – false films, fake news, false scientific reports, paid witnesses, info that more fake a-bombs were secretly built and tested, etc, etc. 1945 simple people, fed up with war, believed any Fake News trumpeted by authorities. And the Fake News and the bad science became historic truth.

      Japan was immediately sealed off from the world by US military occupation 1945/52; no Japan citizens could travel abroad; no foreigners could visit Japan or Hiroshima and Nagasaki in particular; all journalists visiting Japan were controlled by US military authorities, Japan companies that started in Manchuria 1933+ could relocate back to Japan and start again, an economic miracle could take place and so on. Perfect ground to falsify history and to create this nuclear hoax. USSR could occupy the Japanese colonies Manchuria and Korea.

      The International Military Tribunal for the Far East established 1946/8 that a number of Japanese military and bureaucrats were responsible. They had conspired since 1928 to take over the Far East by wars of aggression and murders.

      The Sovietunion had stoppped it August 1945 by attacking Japanese Manchuria and Korea and USA had definitiely defeated Japan same month by dropping two fake atomic bombs. Justice was done by executing some Japanese military and bureaucrats 1948! 1951 USA forced Japan to sign a Mutal Security Pact because communist China, North Korea and USSR planned to attack Japan. Later, 1961, this pact became a USA/Japan military alliance, which is still in force 2019. Of course nobody planned to attack Japan ever, but USA had to keep the atomic bomb nuclear hoax alive to have military bases in Japan.
      Stupid, isn’t it? 🙂

    2. Belief in the atomic bombs is to believe the Main Stream Media – which…. ALL commenters here have written that THEY LIE – “BIGGLY”!!

      Further…. from the author:

      “One serious mistake 1945 was that ordinary Japan citizens including children – I know two – could immediately return to Hiroshima and the damaged suburb of Nagasaki and rebuild the towns and go to school there in spite of the alleged deadly radiation, etc. There was no danger of course but to make the nuclear hoax more realistic, (**)the towns should have been sealed off and abandoned at least 10 years! Like Fukushima!

  4. The Noahide laws of America state Christians will be Guillotined for worshipping Christ.
    Your U.S. government can now legally kill Christians for the “crime” of worshipping Jesus Christ!
    A diabolic deception has been perpetrated on the American people by their OWN leaders, Senators and Congressmen, who have sold their soul to the devil. On March 5, 1991, in the House of Representatives, and March 7, 1991, in the U.S. Senate, without any knowledge of, or input by, the people of the United States, U.S. Senators and Congressmen passed a law that is so outrageous – and frankly unconstitutional – that it forces the American people to be bound by a set of monstrous rules, called the Noahide Laws, rules that make the belief in Jesus Christ a crime punishable by decapitation by guillotine! On March 20, 1991, President George H.W. Bush, a supposed Christian, signed the bill into law. (Deanna’s note: President George W. Bush follows in his father’s footsteps.

    In Pensacola, Fla., retired FBI agent Ted Gunderson tells a gathering of antigovernment “Patriots” that the federal government has set up 1,000 internment camps across the country and is storing 30,000 guillotines and a half-million caskets in Atlanta. They’re there for the day the government finally declares martial law and moves in to round up or kill American dissenters, he says. “They’re going to keep track of all of us, folks,” Gunderson warns.

  5. PAT
    you waxed eloquent..
    It’s a national security state power pyramid structure, directed from a global bankster headquarters.
    And what a leap to think nation states would no longer need so much security… yet until that time comes we’re stuck in the paranoid funhouse…
    And no I don’t think open borders and free stuff is the answer…
    The best the pyramid can offer is PaxAmericana, which is far from the worst possible scenario..
    However, we all understand by now the Americana version of global security is a Proxy PaxZionica, not exactly coming with the very best motives…
    But holding the security pyramid together is not as much about the force as it is about the information….
    Which if everyone has the same, it would mean a whole new ballgame, not one compatible with the competitive capitalistic corporate methodology we know so well…
    The highly advanced non-competitive, basically altruistic socialist paradise could be just out of reach..

  6. Thank you Pat. TJ can rest easy now that the A-Bomb doesn’t exist. And to think all those (in)famous Jewish physicists and scientists were drawing down the big fat government pay checks working on something that never existed. But isn’t that just like our (((betters)))? Now long did it take the scribblers to concoct the fairy tales from the Old and New Testaments? that some (most?) people take as the gospel truth and making hay out of it.
    TJ wonders if President Truman knew that he gave the go-ahead to drop two fake A-bombs on Japan, that is after the Japanese had offered to surrender 3-or 4 times.
    It’s a good thing that the US beat the Nazis to the punch when they, the Nasties, were on the verge of creating their very own fake ersatz A-Bomb. As good as the Nazis were at propaganda they would have been no match at faking an A-Bomb like the Americans. Besides, the US had all the good nuclear (((physicists))) to help fake it.

    It’s really to bad for the sake of justice that the “victorious” Allies, war criminals in their own right, were not put on trial like the Japanese and the Germans. But alas, the WW2 fake victors get to write the history that they are the “Greatest Generation” while the losers get the short end of stick not unlike what Colonel Gaddafi and others have received as of late at the tender hands and Christian mercies of the Amurrican Empire and it’s minions.

    Just think, America and Russia have all these years, right along with their fake-A-Bomb-after-birth-acolytes have pulled the radioactive wool over the blood shot eyes of the gullible world. Get some rest world!

    Pat’s poem is OK. As a composer I have set many, many poems and lyrics to music. Pat’s poem could be set to something like Shubert’s “Earl King”. Maybe half assed composer LLoyd Webber could turn Pat’s poem into musical. TJ is sure it would be a hit on Broadway. Fake music about the fake bomb. TJ had better stop now before he falls asleep.

    TJ will rest easy tonight after the dog’s pee-pee break befor bed time.

    1. “…fairy tales from the Old and New Testament.”
      Leaving aside the OT as well as the mysterious NT Book of Revelation, I think that if one reads the NT rather than relying on writings on the NT, one should surely conclude that it is far from being a fairy tale. No one could have made it up. The only reason I can see why someone would say that he thinks it was made up after having actually read it is that he doesn’t WANT it to be true, in other words he prefers his sin to the truth.

  7. One man’s interpretation of what Jesus relates:
    The battle of Good vs. Evil is spiritual in nature. An OFFENSIVE one fought by the side of Darkness (Evil), whose aim is to “conquer” human souls, meaning to maintain their existence in this temporal state. The aim of the Light (Good) is a DEFENSIVE one in preventing that, and working in tandem with those who have the wherewithal to resist it.
    Any battle of “Armageddon” would be a physical one fought as Evil vs. Evil, incidental to the war of Good vs. Evil having already been decided
