Is This the Beginning of the End
Music: Fugue from the Fantasie and Fugue in d
By Max Reger. Sequenced by Sergei Winitzki at Kunst der Fuge.
|Hear me read
the poem as
an MP3 file.
Is this the beginning of the end?
Now is when we start to fall?
Debtors to both foe and friend,
Eventually obliged to all?
Perhaps we can pull out of this,
Electing leaders who will lead,
Not stuck in this paralysis,
Dreading most what we most need.
Each must give that all might gain,
Nor ought we shun the sacrifice.
Could we but bear the healing pain
Equally, we'd pay the price.
Dependence on another's will
Assumes that we their coffers fill,
Yielding ever to their advice.
