Retrodictions, canto 4, quatrain 2

A rod of iron on the roof
protects the house from Heaven’s fire
whose lawful nature has this proof;
the thunderbolt in copper wire.

Commentary by Brother Quark:
This is about the legitimacy of monarchy.

Commentary by N. Hellerstein:
This is about lightning rods and electricity.
