slippery slope

there is no one who would not hesitate
before such choices as the ones we face
such facts as these no rubber can erase
we choose to blame a silent hateful fate
a lie that we can forge without debate
this deity before whom we can abase
ourselves and claim that there is no disgrace
in saying that we simply could not wait
never believe just what you have been told
by those who claim to have your care in hand
the world is ruled by monsters and by brutes
the smell of shit comes from what looks like gold
honour and honesty have both been banned
and decent folk have found other pursuits
