Rudderless speedboat adrift on the sea
Lighthouses so last century.
Mores dismantled 'fore the
Reign of rights.
Liberation's surprise is slavery.

"One cannot establish the reign of liberty without that of mores, and mores cannot be firmly founded without beliefs."
 ~Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America (trans. G. Lawrence).
