Original oil painting, and poem by Vincent Monaco The Meatplow
Our sons always go.
They go to be cut to pieces,
Rather than to live, and to grow.
butchers our boys,
meatplow is so horrible,
can we rationalize,
Can you spot these double images and symbols?
Inspired by Mathew 24 of The Bible regarding the signs of the 2nd coming of Christ, and the end of this age. Jesus compares the worlds conditions to labor pangs. The analogy being the worlds's conditions would be just as a woman's labor pangs become closer together, and more intense signaling the closer it is to the time of the birth.

From Mathew 24 of The Bible.
3) As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately saying, "Tell us, when will this be, and what will be the sign of your coming and the close of the age?" 4) And Jesus answered them, "Take heed that no one leads you astray. 5) For many will come in my name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and they will lead many astray. 6) And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not alarmed; for this must take place, but the end is not yet. 7) For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places: 8) all this is but the beginning of the birth-pangs.
The Practical Deception

(16) And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to be marked in the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless they have the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of it's name.
