Is this the season
for an Age of Reason
are guarded forces
planning treason

will sinister sources
coerce us on courses
that herald the thunder
of four dreaded horses

to trample under
and rend asunder
this anachronism
through which we blunder?

The real cataclysm
is striving for a schism
which scatters hope
as through a prism.

Indeed, 'Is the writing/warning not upon many broken walls of history'.
Best wishes,
