gas chamber

question authority we used to say
when we could be killed on any day
by missiles sent from far away

how strange it is to see the youth
parrot on message words so couth
making thinkers weep like ruth

'oh no' they say it's religion's fault
then quote lutheran attacks with salt
not tasted or understood in assault

or fear the sun and fear the earth
for climate change will be our death
while sending microwaves with their breath

but never dare to try to question
any their empathetic assertion
for they are filled with such compassion
and wish your simple annihilation

The Blue Book
