Getting Old

In the parlance of the times we go
Like gray birds in the light pecking for crumbs they throw
From high atop the towers crowned with pentagram and cross
Upside down ploughing through the muck waiting for a tossS
So much for silver so much for gold
Walls of Streets sell Bombs for Wars so
Wear your masks take your shots do what you're told
One thinks one would have learned by now
How to rise above the rust and mold
But the bloody calf's a sacred cow or sow
Devouring us all
Does it never get old ?
