Cicero Was Right

The Course of Empire—Destruction, Thomas Cole, 1836

 

Cicero was right: The enemy

Works behind the gates from

The inside out in the dead

Of night, infecting the body

Politic, with dark whispers

Wafting through the sewer

Pipes of power, while the

Lemmings tumble round and

Round the drain; destined to

Inherit the abyss

And there are no rats on the

Enemy’s back to expose his

Rotten deeds while feeding

His proxy warriors tyranny

And bondage in the name of

Equality; degenerate identity

Politics replacing economics;

Sordid carnal crumbs

Flung at a nation in ruins, a

Colony of misled willing slaves

In a State of religious chaos,

Drunk on virtue-signalling and

Toxic tweets featuring girly

Emoji hieroglyphics; too blind

To see the Wizard of Id

Manipulate their melted minds

Marinated in maudlin trendy

Altruism and carnal desires,

While looking for the latest

Cause célèbre hoax of social

Injustice; and they turn

Their back on the sacred Host

That once cleansed their souls,

Now at risk of a Hell eternity,

While the new counter-culture

Rebels and the dispossessed

Suffer a lonely Gethsemane

Yes, Cicero was right:

The enemy speaks in the

Pierced tongues of the

Metropolis mob, the babel

Of Baphomet and culture

Of deathand what could

Be worse than the death of

A nation by the will of its own

People? Is a murderer less

To fear? Cicero thought so.
