Mother Shipton’s Prophecies (1482-1561 A.D.)

 

“Man flees in terror from the floods
And kills, and rapes and lies in blood
And spilling blood by mankinds hands
Will stain and bitter many lands

And when the dragon’s tail is gone
Man forgets, and smiles, and carries on
To apply himself — too late, too late
For mankind has earned deserved fate.

His masked smile – his false grandeur
Will serve the Gods their anger stir.
And they will send the Dragon back
To light the sky – his tail will crack
Upon the earth and rend the earth
And man shall flee, King, Lord, and serf.

But slowly they are routed out
To seek diminishing water spout
And men will die of thirst before
The oceans rise to mount the shore.

And lands will crack and rend anew
You think it strange. It will come true.

And in some far off distant land
Some men – oh such a tiny band
Will have to leave their solid mount
And span the earth, those few to count.
Who survives this, and then
Begin the human race again.

But not on land already there
But ocean beds, stark, dry and bare
Not every soul on Earth will die
As the Dragon’s tail goes sweeping by.

No every land on earth will sink
But these will wallow in stench and stink
Of rotting bodies of beast and man
Of vegetation crisped on land.

But the land that rises from the sea
Will be dry and clean and soft and free
Of mankind’s dirt and therefore be
The source of man’s new destiny.

And those that live will forever fear
The dragons tail for many year
But this erases memory
You think it strange. But it will be.

And before the race is built anew
A silver serpent comes to view
And spew out men of like unknown
To mingle with the earth now grown
Cold from its heat and these men can
Enlighten the minds of future man.

To intermingle and show them how
To live and love and thus endow
The children with the second sight.
A natural thing so that they might
Grow graceful, humble and when they do
The Golden Age will start anew.

The dragon’s tail is but a sign
For mankind’s fall and man’s decline.
And before this prophecy is done
I shall be burned at the stake, at one
My body singed and my soul set free
You think I utter blasphemy!
You’re wrong. These things have come to me
This prophecy will come to be.”
