City Of Abomination


It was not this way aforetime
it was just the very best
that was offered to mankind

it was the city of love
it was the city of joy
it was the city of happiness
it was the city of all good

now discarded to dust
now no longer only good things
a mixture of everything

the city is now sodomy
incest now sleeps with the city
bisexuals becomes leaders of...

What a city of...
City of men
now seems to be like
the city of mammals on four feet

Oh! That is the city
the city of living to die

Oh! The above Master of all
come to our rescue...

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
