The Fall

BY DR. AGONSON

Freedom for hard chains we have now exchanged.
Liberty for peace, a cannibal’s feast.
When the meal is gone remember this song.

Love’s soft lies despise,
truth is in their eyes.
A wolf’s wink deceives
upon you he feeds.
These people hunger,
and tear asunder,
this nation’s wonder.

What have you achieved? And what is the fee?
Gold for ashes now, God’s face made to frown.
His pearls before swine, after filth we pined.

And what remedy,
can make wise the fool?
What known chemistry,
will fix the gene pool?
Is there naught to do,
to steer from this doom?
The end came so soon.

These red-handed crimes forged terrible binds:
Children’s blood we spill for imagined ills,
Sanity tabooed, and soldiers marooned.
