Illusion of Security

Mysterious immortal flame

Has come to an untimely end

And we know not the blame

Or how to mend


Written long ago, now lost

In the illusion of present

The myth has been tossed

For something more pleasant


No facts are known

And the future starts to look bleak

We should not have over- grown

Now we have lost the old technique


Security that has always been

But now it’s nothing but sin
