03 Jan 2017 – State of the “Union”

Here under Heaven it’s business as usual:
the transfer of power – the turning of tables.
“One Gun, One Vote” – that’s our dream of Democracy.
Animal appetites, largely insatiable.

That roaring you hear is the sound of men’s thinking.
Our cornerstone floats on the sweat of cruel labor.
They say God’s our Father – but no family likeness.
The damned won’t consent to the love of their neighbors.
