The Comedy of Terror

As right as right may be,

as right as the wrong of a long lost memory.

This madness is an omen of most horrible doom.

A condemnation of subtle violence, of silent desperation,

in the darkness of a well-lit-room.

As true as pretended truth displays

the truthful lies in these passing days.

Unity is our most dreadful lie.

Shrinking from the madness of false genius,

a Comedy of Terror before our eyes.

I was taught that the human brain was the crowning glory of evolution so far, but I think it’s a very poor scheme for survival – Kurt Vonnegut
