If Nostradamus was the smartest of the squad
He spoke for
Him not to harness the honest comments
Of God he hoped for
This is a little complicated for the effect of tone, pattern, and wordplay.
Playing on the last line: “Tell me who not to trust”, the next rhyme paints an image of a man who so many have trusted- Nostradamus, to predict their lives.
His predictions, being too vague to lock down in any strict sense, often lend themselves to the users/readers whim, perpetuating “doomsday” fears throughout history, usually used to aid ones own “doomsday” interpretation.
“The honest comments of "God” line is referring to:
“No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”– Mark 13:32
