Then

Then we were young
and the world
so big
so promising

Then we were kings
and queens and princes
lords of all we
ruled

Ruled and were ruled
by Pater and Mater
who were themselves
ruled

By the
Grand
Oral
Disseminator

Who gave his only son
and took
our lives
our beliefs
our promise

Took all we knew and loved
all we learned and were taught
to love and respect

And destroyed it

Oh.
Merciful God!
