Destroy what is incomprehensible !
Erase the writing that can give the lie !
Ignore, decry, but do not reason with
The point of view that’s indefensible.
Kill your opponent ! Do not question why,
Or whether in his argument is pith !
Let no one claim a creed is possible
That is not yours; blow it to bits on high
With no memorial ! Keep to your monolith;
To shatter what you fear is sensible !
So do we all, detesting to be faced
With what disturbs our poise; but let us ware,
Lest we should find, for want of tolerance fair,
We on the pyre our dearest hopes have placed !
