good God haven't I been here before?

it looks so familiar

past styles reverberate in new forms and

old echoes in new voices

vast and mysterious

but trite and predictable

we're nowhere near some cosmic end-game

though some of us wish we were

the new tyrant sounds no different

than the old style one

the reformer mirrors the tyrant's style

and still thinks it's for a greater purpose

good God the new liberation still enslaves

I've been here before watching the same bread and circus games
