Come the fall,

The old shapes will emerge…

Ancient ugliness; Men and Women;

Stripped bare,

Politeness by politeness.


Strong men will emerge…

Women will flock.


All will want to please.

All will want to live.

All, that is…

Apart from you:


You will not succumb.

You will stand fast.

You will fight the good fight.


Because… you are strong.

Because… you have women at your feet.

And, because…

You made us fall.
