…A flowering of the human spirit
in which Evil torments and exploits
as much of Creation as it can reach.
…A development of Freedom To,
when the corner stone of Ethics is discarded,
that proliferates and insinuates
to as near Absolute Power as it can reach.
…Its latest and fashionable flowering,
concentration camps and guards,
farms and farmers,
vivisection laboratories and Ph.D.’s.
…Its High Priests and Thought Police,
Bishops and Ayatollahs and MPs.
…All those who seek to corral
the Living Spirit
and embed it
in dense shadowy stuff called Matter.
There, compressed by pain,
it evaporates away
to re-form eternally
(From Gnomonic Verses)
