the last civilities slip away

as each man proclaims himself God

neighbor rises up and is wolf to neighbor

and a snarling mob of so-called humanity

claws its way the poor and weak

something small that cannot escape them

I'm afraid I've just tipped my hand

and have shown that I've survived from a time

when the packs were held at bay

while something held in common was truly blessed

oh I know the world has never been a paradise

nor will it ever be

but never has there been such a ravening

and never have their been such demons in human form

proclaiming the so-called good and the allegedly holy

the last civilities slip away and with them

the last of our humanity

as each man dies his own Satan
