The writing on the wall

12 Apr 2022 | Moral Justice | 1 comment

Silence like a cancer grows

And the people bowed and prayed

To the neon god they made.

And the sign flashed out its warning,

In the words that it was forming,

And the signs said,

‘The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls

And tenement halls,

And whisper in the sounds of silence.’


Paul Simon (1942 – ), 1964.
