Get through the dialectic
  before the day is late

Don’t wait for an invitation
  as they slowly shut the gate

The wolf now dressed in spun wool
  has broken from his cage

He hungers deep inside our fear
  with ignorance and rage

As traitors lurk in front of us
  to vanquish and to quell

All time has stopped, their curses screamed
  assassins pledged to hell

The moment to act is calling
  the odds both long and wide

This battle worth refighting
  for those before who thought and died

So if truth’s your greatest weapon
  wield it willingly and free

The enemy is upon us
  —and must leave on bended knee

(Villanova Pennsylvania: June, 2016)
