Following Orders

 

Such a good Boy Scout
Another patch to earn
Stand by devout
Watch heaps of Poetry
burn

BURN!

Forms
marched in formation
across a crooked acrostic Nation
straight into industrial gas ovens
gasping to be let out

Will you ever learn?

I severely doubt

On knees pleading
Please!

PLEASE!


Rhymes in their prime
made to swallow insecticide
writhing on floor;
wasn't long before they died

Staring through the grime
you stood by the window
good for nothing
thinking

It's only orders that I follow

Staring through the window
you stood for nothing
conscience clean

as the Humanities were

purified
