no king returns

we wait for rescue and beseech for aid
lacking in energy to build our hope
we'd hang ourselves had we a length of rope
our teachers have worked well we are afraid
of secret forces that have been arrayed
against our interests and we cannot cope
with any hard idea we need soft soap
to soothe us now as we accept the blade
those who would warn have nothing more to say
in all this noise and might as well shut up
letting what happens simply take its course
the foolish are supposed to have their way
while we're constrained to drink from the dark cup
and see the final cost of all their force
