No matter though it towers to the sky,

And darkens earth, you cannot make the lie

Immortal; though stupendously enshrined

By art in every perfect mould of mind:

Angelo, Rafael, Milton, Handel, all

Its pillars, cannot stay it from the fall.

The Pyramid of Imposture reared by Rome,

All of cement, for an eternal home,

Must crumble back to earth, and every gust

Shall revel in the desert of its dust;

And when the prison of the Immortal, Mind,

Hath fallen to set free the bound and blind,

No more shall life be one long dread of death;

Humanity shall breathe with ampler breath,

Expand in spirit, and in stature rise,

To match its birthplace of the earth and skies.

Gerald MAssey
