we never said anything as the Goliath of good swept our heritage. No! We never said anything we never said anything as the twentieth century spirit cremate the hearts of the good and the kind alike we never said anything Keeping tight reign over our tongues we watched -watched as the innocence of our children grilled by the flames of hell itself we never said anything we tried but before we could utter the pleasure of gratifying self-played us like violins and so we watched, silently we watched and silently we never said anything We watched as the loving hearts of the old and the young alike corrupted by hatred we never said anything- silently we watched as the saints’ compromise truth we never said anything as evil takes victory over good-lies over truth-immorality over justice silently like the statue of liberty we chose to watch Words of truth-words of God not failing us but we chose to watch- watch as the pure wisdom of the old drained into endless drains NO we never said anything-we watched thinking it nothing more than just swag;-style
