A growing chill pervades the room
I sense the angst of spreading gloom
How sad that we must victims be
Of anger and anxiety !
What is it that has power to rule
Converts us each into some fool
And robs us of our humankind
To leave us weak and false and blind ?
A lack of faith and knowledge too
Our schooling with a perverse view
Rejecting that which made us great
Replaced with laws of fear and hate !
