A blackout poem made from the lyrics of 'Jacob's Ladder' by Rush (Neil Peart)
Jacob’s Ladder – Rush (Neil Peart)

The clouds
prepare for battle
In the dark and brooding silence
Bruised and sullen storm clouds
Have the light of day obscured
Looming low and ominous
In twilight premature
Thunderheads are rumbling
In
a distant overture

All at
once,
The clouds are parted
Light streams down
In bright unbroken beams

Follow men's eyes
As they look to the skies
The shifting shafts of shining
Weave the fabric of their dreams



Jacob’s Ladder

Prepare for battle
in the brooding silence.
Bruised and sullen,
obscured
in twilight premature.
A distant overture
once parted -
follow,
look to the skies;
weave the fabric of dreams.
