History Repeats

"That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons of history." ~ Aldous Huxley

History Repeats

 
Alter your behavior
Lest they bend you; thought control
As you flirt with grim disaster
In their twisted game of minds

This whole world is mired in words
Too much faith is staked on lies
Come September and it'll be last year
History repeats itself History repeats!

The towers are coming down
During commercial-break distractions
Can anyone justify such actions?
Can we even make peace anymore?

Never ready for indignity
Our ignorance runs rampant
Nude and wild in broad daylight
Deja-Vu served up with all the trimmings

Anchorman cracks under the pressure
Exhausted by the laws
Of a mute and idle GOD
Martyrs broken by his absence

So light a lantern in this darkness
Prepare a pyre for the funeral
May you be reborn
Bright as the skies' celestial eyes

Because History repeats itself

History repeats...

Don't be shy, REPLY!
