In the evening, you’ve forecasted
if the sky gleams red,
that the weather will be placid
for the days ahead.
And if the sky’s ruby at morning,
you inform folks to take warning
as the thunder clouds are forming,
and the weather will be storming.
For you know if the sky is reddening,
the conditions will be threatening.
Sure, you’re fast to forecast
whether rough weather will roar past,
laying waste unto its warpath,
but tell me what the Lord hath wrought –
the first shall be last as they ought!
O, for all of your interpretation,
you cannot read the times!
Frankly, an evil generation
seeks for itself a sign!
