Chapter and Verse

Particulars separate the men from the boys
Weapons for war from trivial toys
An age of innocence becomes an age of experience
From an earth of Eden to a planet of ploys
chapter and verse, chapter and verse
there’s a difference on the page
chapter and verse, chapter and verse
we’re a people led by a sage.

Specifics separate chaos from order
a system of sanity from a holocaust of hoarder
an island unto itself becomes a continent of content
from a Magellan of melange to an Armstrong of distent
chapter and verse, chapter and verse
we’re a preface of distrust
chapter and verse, chapter and verse
we’re an epilogue of disgust.

The End.  (of humanity)

The Beginning.  (of humility)
