Never forget, never forgive.


In the darkness anyone may strike a light

and say, follow me.


Beware the mutterers and mumblers,

the blackrobes and greybeards with all the answers


for one answer is a life of misery,

another is the gun.


Follow only the love of all life on earth, not the gods

of death; their candle bearers are charlatans,


their light leads only to the abyss.
