THE OBITUARY
by George Edward Tait

 

Who silenced the cry for freedom?
Where did the struggle go?
What void contains the corpse of revolution?
Who made formaldehyde our beverage of choice
& changed our anthem to "Taps?"
Is it the carcass of courage I smell 
Or the decomposition of destiny?
When was the magic replaced by maggots?
Why do we fatten the worms?
