Consequence ConsequenceMore Like This
They tell me there's a consequence
For everything we do.
I ask what consequence there is
For idiots like you.
What consequence are preachers?
What consequence are fools
When most are bound to serve them both
As rudiment'ry tools?
What consequence is vengeance?
What consequence is peace?
What consequence is freedom?
Or some secret state police?
What consequence are soldiers?
What consequence are wars?
To the vanquished and the victor:
To Those That HateTo Those That HateMore Like This
Many things that Man may take
Can keep him sound and strong,
But everything is poison
Should it linger there too long.
Mercury is nasty stuff,
And Strychnine makes one ill,
But hatred is a poison
That makes one sicker still.
Every nasty chemical
One finds upon a shelf
Mankind can find in small amounts
Deep inside himself.
As those who bite a bitter fruit
Must question why they ate it,
So those who scorn and curse a thing
Should question why they hate it.
