Where are they now

Where are the doubters

The critical questioners

The dreamers

The anarchists

The true idealists

The troublesome activists

The wise men

The fable writers

The romantics

The philosophers

And the realists

Were all their minds rent assunder

By education and teachers

Who sought to produce fodder for the worhouse and a target for the guns

On battlefields built on lies and corruption

Where are the existentialists

And all the nihilists who question everything

Why have we created so many societies that no longer resist

The destruction of humanity through war and environmental chaos

Why have we created societies that seem so riddled with pathos.
