I saw the greatest minds of your generation destroyed by drugs, parasites and neglect,

     until all that was left was the court jester, the great fraud-peer himself cackling, hawking, terrible.

In the dim light of howling death it seemed impossible to see beyond to the cold and sharp future days,

     when your generation turned on its young, we damned creatures of the terrible new age.

With no one to protect us we withered, small and bitter fools of inexperience,

      left only the meagre scraps of a once lavish and wondrous banquet.

Nothing of the rich bacchanal was left for us, nothing but resentful uncertain destiny.

Nothing of love and sun or goodness, hope or wonder or beauty.

I saw the greatest minds of your generation destroyed, with only yourselves to blame.
