What is the first image that comes to mind when you think of wooden horses?
How about the Trojan horse?
The Trojan Horse is a story from the Trojan War about the subterfuge that the Greeks used to enter the city of Troy and win the conflict. In the canonical version, after a fruitless 10-year siege, the Greeks constructed a huge wooden horse, and hid a select force of men inside. The Greeks pretended to sail away, and the Trojans pulled the horse into their city as a victory trophy. That night the Greek force crept out of the horse and opened the gates for the rest of the Greek army, which had sailed back under cover of night. The Greeks entered and destroyed the city of Troy, decisively ending the war.
King James Version (KJV)
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
In the name of peace and safety, our rights are being stripped from our hands. Gun Control, drones, surveillance over everyone and everything. Those who are ignorant of what is really going, welcome it.
Once again, we see that the powers that be are not shy nor are they very subtle if you recognize their signs that announce their intentions:
King James Version (KJV)
6 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

Katy Perry's Dark Horse:
Perry said the song was a "warning", explaining that she wrote it from the perspective of a witch warning a man not to fall in love with her. Described as a "witchy, spell-y kind of black magic-y idea", Perry spoke of the song in further detail, saying: "It's kind of a juxtaposition. It's got me, a pop artist, with a little bit of an urban kind of hip-hop-flavored background soundtrack to it, and the lyrics are kind of witchy and dark, as if I was a witch warning this man not to fall in love with me, and if you do know I'm going to be your last."

Given her performance last night at the Grammy's I am more than curious as to see what the Superbowl Half time show has in store.
Speaking of horses and to be more specific...how about them Broncos? Is this truly the year of the horse and will they be this year's champions?
This is the "devil" horse that stands in Denver's Airport. Just another creepy sign.
On an interesting side note speaking of seahawks:
Pope Francis on Sunday prayed for the start of a “constructive dialogue” in Ukraine, releasing two white doves to symbolize the hope for peace. However, the doves were immediately attacked by a crow and a seagull.
