[ Politics & Religion ] 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
