Demented Choirs



Beware utopia’s demented choirs.

Their melodies, with sweet, seductive splendor,

Inflaming Man’s fantastical desires


For liberty from life’s abysmal mires,

Can even bid the stubbornest surrender.

Beware utopia’s demented choirs.


In semblance prophets, but in spirit liars,

Yet none would seem as righteous or as tender

Inflaming Man’s fantastical desires,


‘Til every city bursts in purging fires

And everybody’s labelled an offender.

Beware utopia’s demented choirs.


Don’t hesitate to tear their filthy fliers.

Rebuke the one self-crowned Man’s final mender,

Inflaming Man’s fantastical desires,


Or join the bright and ever-growing pyres

With all the other “heathenish” deniers.

Beware utopia’s demented choirs,

Inflaming Man’s fantastical desires.
