amazing to be living at this supernal time

of terrors and revelations

and all most of us can do is cling

to old shameful habits of bigotry

and hubris as if we could stay

the advance of the denouncement

and contain all awareness to an old system

of presumption and insecurity

even with a New Age at hand

the world itself won't be different at all

believers will still believe and

deceivers will still deceive

only the social fabric will be a new swath of chintz

and the rewards a heightened awareness of shame
