Put on your crash helmet, humanity. This could hurt. In "The Black Heralds," violence is used to signify all kinds of human suffering. In fact, even life itself, or the universe, is violent toward humanity as it delivers its powerful "blows." And the worst part—the universe is out to get us!
The universe is conspiring against you, and it's coming after you according to this poem. Watch out!
The poem urges people to fight back against violent repression. Rise up!
