to those dark distant slumbers
where the secrets lie too deep
like some deep distant bell
that rings for those who weep
at the senselessness of slaughter
that marks progress steady beat
but the all night walker knows
we cannot escape the cage
with fists clenched tight in fury
or minds too full of rage
when the holder rof the key
with her voice of common sense
can reveal the truth when only
insanity relents
