Eggs are for breaking, ere greatness be writ.
Us powerful, vicious diners on flesh
Raised men for eating. We digest them well.
Mothers who know of their fate, yet persist;

Bound by history’s chains. Heard prosperity’s
Knell, that bids them wait, says Heaven’s Will
In Hell does happen. These Lies they utter,
Complete. The Rich can only get richer,
Poor only poorer. That is the worldly way.
