No Light, No Liberty
by DCDave

Do we have intellectual ferment?
Sad to say, we do not.
I looked behind the ivied walls
And found there only rot.

I said, "Behold the lies
We swallow every day,"
But when they see unpleasant truth
Our pedants look away.

We can't preserve our freedom
Without the will to fight,
And governance is tyranny
When practiced out of sight.

David Martin
