everyone worships money and power

now that earthly law has ruled their mendacity legal

they cursed God and nothing struck them down

so they feel brave now to send families to their ruins

now they have joined the Control and can track

everyone's habits and indulgences

to a memory bank

(the ancient schoolmarm's threat

of a permanent record realized and fulfilled)

when you can be denied whatever you took to be

freedom and if no one knocks on your door

at midnight it only means you haven't pissed someone off

and this whole generation of automata think

this is absolutely wonderful and right

every generation it's own brand of idiocy and self-regard...

and the ancient fools like me of the old faith

those of us ever waiting for some deliverance from a just merciful God

we just sit dissolved in our lesson of what it truly means

to be liability for our own actions...oh fools...all of us...

we who cling to this era's illusion of evil as a given

and we who wait for a God to send plagues to show our enemies

we meant business...we all jerk off in a mirror...

whether claiming matter as our prize

or performing obeisance to the Original CEO...

the Original Gangster...
