The future threatens
to make us seem quaint and ridiculous.
while the applause
has died away well before we arrived.
Mode juste today,
critical gaffe tomorrow.
We who write now will be subject
to cruel normalization
and barbaric standardization,
lost somewhere in a canon
the young are forced begrudgingly to honour
The political choices we make today may feel right.
Tomorrow will judge us harshly
and we will be condemned.
The future is like that: and it has the luxury
of history and consequence -
we should have known better becomes our epitaph.
The future will consign us to haunt the earth
spurned devils and the mark of Cain.
Our actions, once laudable, become burdens
as death renders us mute and indefensible.
