Tear it down, edifice of deceit
break bricks apart, free them
of their mortar, give each
its proper, kiln proven weight
to be built upon, rich red clay
molded, baked solid in highest
temperatures of a furnace
tensile strength cooked in free
from encroaching relations
guile of political meddling
distortion of truth for means
concealed, marching orders
justified by lie, many lives die.
