THE ASYLUM.

THEY BUILD A WALL AROUND YOUR HEARTS,
PLACING SENTRIES,MEN AND BEASTS.
THEY FILL THEIR HALLS AND STASH THEIR ART.
CHARGING ENTRY FOR SIMPLE EYE FEASTS.
IN SILENT VOICE WE THUNDER LOUDEST.
WE HAVE FREE CHOICE AND STAND THE PROUDEST.
LIKE THE WOMAN ON THAT HORSE,WHO LEAPT THE HIGHEST.
FOR GIRLS AND BOYS AGAINST THOSE WHO WOULD TRY US.
THERE IS A WAY THRU THE MAZE OF HORRORS!
AMID THE WHORES OF POWER IN EVERY CORRODOR.
A NEWER AND FAIRER PAIR OF MORE FITTING BOOTS.
IN THIS OUR SHORES!IN THIS VERY KIBBUTZ.
