hall of horrors!
les marbres du Parthenon
dans le British Museum –
quelle salle d’horreurs !
The theft of the Parthenon marbles by Lord Elgin and the British from 1801 to 1812 is one of the most appalling crimes of highway robbery in all history! It is a filthy act of depredation, and it deserves nothing less than our condemnation and scorn. But of course the British at the British Museum are disgusting idiots who simply cannot see the writing on the wall!
What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them
has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains
and go in search of the one that went astray?
Since Hell’s self resurrected on the mad,
the sane dare not consort with the insane,
unless they find themselves as ironclad
in mind as soul to shear across the grain
of equipoise and suffer the untold,
to cast themselves on Sinai’s desert rocks,
to wander off and stray beyond the fold
where they’ll fall easy prey to Satan’s hawks.
But pause... and ask yourself if you’d submit
to humiliation, the same embraced
by martyrs such as they, or counterfeit,
and by the latter token be defaced.
The wolf has left his lair, and shall attack
the sane and the insane... and can’t turn back.
