The Spirit of Apollyon: From Hiroshima To Beirut

“And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.”
-The Apocalypse of Saint John 9:11

British MP Renfield R. Renfield read aloud a poem he had written:

Today is the 75th Anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima
which killed almost 150,000 people
and left others scarred and maimed for life
Plus numerous deaths from cancer over the years

The atomic bomb was given the epithet Little Boy
and was dropped by a B-29 called the Enola Gay
(quite possibly because it was the first LGBTQ2s+ plus
military plane in history)

J. Robert Oppenheimer who helped develop the atomic bomb
remarked upon its creation, a line from the Bhagavad Gita,
“Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.”
Shiva in his most destructive aspect,
that of the Destroyer
whose Hebrew name and equivalent was Abaddon
and whose Greek name and equivalent was Apollyon.

A couple of days ago an explosion 1/10 the size of Hiroshima’s atomic explosion
rocked the city of Beirut Lebanon
killing at least 137 people
and injuring about 5000 others
while dozens more are still missing

The cause was an explosion of ammonium nitrate
stored in a Beirut port warehouse
that had sat there for 6 years
after it had been taken off an impounded sea vessel back in 2013
The Rhosus a Moldovan flagged ship
on its way from Georgia to Mozambique
and had entered Beirut port
after suffering technical problems.

Port officials had been asking court officials for years
for permission to remove the ammonium nitrate from the warehouse
but Lebanese courts acting with the same constipated air of irregularity
that grips the bowels and the minds of their fellow judicial counterparts all over the world
sat and did nothing

The spirit of Apollyon can dance many dances
a dance that’s quick and swift like what happened at Hiroshima
75 years ago
or a dance that’s a slow dance that builds to a crescendo
like what happened in Beirut a couple of days ago
after a 6 year very slow waltz.

-A poem by Renfield R. Renfield

Epilogue:

The Buddhist goddess of mercy Kwan Yin sat and wept when she saw the destruction at Hiroshima 75 years ago on August 6th 1945.

On the beaches of Beirut, Thessalonike of Macedon the immortal mermaid half-sister of Alexander the Great wept when she saw the destructive explosion that rocked Beirut Lebanon on August 4th 2020.

    If the port officials were asking for permission then why did not the court approved. Was it waiting for this to happen. And obviously if the port officials were saying this, it means they had a reason.

    The videos on social media are frightening.

    “judicial counterparts all over the world sat and did nothing” ..,when you work for the government, you quickly learn that you don’t have to do anything to collect a check. (Unlike the competitive capitalistic private sector). So, you get fatter and lazier doing nothing, until people die. I understand some of those bureaucrats have been arrested and thrown in jail…the system of unaccountability must tumble.

      Yes, the system of unaccountability will tumble under its own weight of which there will be a lot since these bureaucrats are so fat and lazy. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ

      The City of Calgary has a bloated public civil service.

      They’ll keep cutting public services but they’ll keep the bureaucrats.

      I wonder if the fat ugly blimps Pan Goatee keeps having to dispose of work for the Calgary civil service.

      In which case it really is a bloated bureaucracy.

    I’m a bit overwhelmed by all the infos but I like reading (or listening) to Renfield’s poem. I can’t say much since I’m mostly here to read without knowledge, but when I saw Enola Gay I can only think of the music by Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark in 1980 ๐Ÿ˜…
