de Legibus

15 March 2010

shallow whispers, insincere
whispered into itching ears
where all is foolishness anyway
and, each and every day,
more and more we from freedom pass
vanitas vanitatum omnia vanitas
saith the Preacher ; and he is right
for in the fearful, maddening plight
men trade the law which guards against tyranny
for a new law, a thing of philanthropy–
the new collar of slavery,
as we sell ourselves and our livery
to the new pharaohs in federalist temples
