The Soaring Birds of Freedom
The soaring birds of freedom
Fall to the earth in yellow streams of fire,
Igniting the dry autumn grass
As Dionysus dances in the field

In the grove where wise men spoke of truth;
Their voices now are silent
As the books of wisdom crackle in the fire,
And the words are soon forgotten

Of a liberated mankind:
A computer-programmed, corporate financed,
Universal brotherhood of
Peace and Love.
