Tho I can 't fiddle while ancient Rome burns,
just have a good time, enjoy hedonism, while America collapses,
and its liberty vanishes, after some flourishes of leftist rhetoric.
I can put defense of freedom on Ignore, since it is hopeless anyway,
and give my attentions to vertibrate paleontology, astrophysics and cosmology.
I do not deny that the pendulum still swings,
as it always has, but reactionaries will not be elected
who will restore the basic American freedom that is destined to be permanently lost.
It will even be expunged from the history books of the public schools.
