fling the wind onto wheels of entropy
dodging the gaze of reptilian breath upon
honesty oiling your fleshy machine
kill the monster in tents of Chautauqua
where allies will cheer your intemperance
tossing their knives at your biblical feet
contributions to save a great nation
from evil incarnate whose scaly skin
secrets you flay laying open corruptions
to order of battle for commonweal trust
one dead serpent is worth all the blood
