Fear & Ignorance

Get through the dialectic

  before the day is late

 

Don’t wait for an invitation

  as they slowly shut the gate

 

The wolf now dressed in spun wool

  has broken from his cage

 

He hungers deep inside our fear

  with ignorance and rage

 

As traitors lurk in front of us

  to vanquish and to quell

 

All time has stopped, their curses screamed

  assassins pledged to hell

 

The moment to act is calling

  the odds both long and wide

 

This battle worth refighting

    for those before who thought and died

 

So if truth’s your greatest weapon

   wield it willingly and free

 

The enemy is upon us

  —and must leave on bended knee
