1. Would You Like Some More Tea, Sir


We united the fringes
Those without hinges
Thought we could tame them
Thought we could blame them
If hate did not sell
And spiteful rhetoric fell
On deaf ears
Igniting no fears
Among those held in contempt
By this heartless attempt

But should we succeed
Create a new creed
Then we could gloat
As we counted the vote
Celebrate our successes
Excuse their excesses
As signs of distresses
And glorified hatred
As sacred
As the thrust of the sword
In the coming of the Lord

Though they were without hinges
These erratic fanatics
Coming from fringes
Proved charismatics
On their masters
Our disasters
Hubris had earned

Oh what the hell
Let the healing begin
Let the other side win
